Reviews

"While it will certainly touch new parents, Pulitzer honoree McGhee's text and Alizadeh's tender pictures will delight readers of all ages." --Booklist (starred review)

"Striking a resonant chord that is at once intimate and universal, McGhee (Someday) gently explores evergreen picture book turf as a couple welcomes their first child. Incorporating imagery from the natural world, Alizadeh's breezy illustrations are pleasingly attuned to the author's spontaneous verse as both reveal the marvel--and regeneration--of human life." --Publishers Weekly

"Smudgily outlined illustrations bring a soft but bright energy to the author's tender text. Pleasant and sentimental ponderings for new parents and children." --Kirkus Reviews
