★ "Readers will be enticed to keep revisiting the book.... Masterful page breaks create anticipation to see what is coming in the next spread, the first part of a truncated sentence often begging readers to turn the page to explore its resolution. The simplicity of Nichols’ illustrations are reminiscent of Christian Robinson’s and, with a diverse cast of characters—including both characters of color and disabled characters—evoke joy, communicate movement, life, and complex concepts. Beautifully brilliant in its simplicity." —Kirkus, STARRED review
