Reviews

"Soaked in warm golds and oranges, Deines's oil paintings glow with a sense of promise...Fullerton says quite a bit with few words in her verselike prose..."

Publishers Weekly


"Notable for its message of putting others before oneself, the story is buoyed by illustrations that shimmer with movement, light and feeling."

Booklist


The simple text reads aloud smoothly, making the book a good introduction for a discussion of different yet similar lives...A nice addition to primary grade "values" collections."

Kirkus Reviews


This glowing book is a wonderful introduction for young readers to life in a culture where many things are different, but some things are exactly the same."
