“The bright pencil and watercolor illustrations, sometimes exuberant, sometimes dreamy, joyously spill across two-page spreads, aptly capturing the happiness generated through familiar activities…equally effective for storytime or for one-on-one snuggling, this is a lovely addition to adoption literature.”
–Booklist

“This poetic tribute to the joyful union of a family and their adopted child greets readers with colorful pen and watercolor vistas and the flowing movement of fantasy flight. … an especially good option where there’s a gap in adoption titles.”
–School Library Journal    

“Characters may defy the laws of gravity, but their radiant, almost musical joy speaks to the reward of magical thinking, and the poignancy of emotional truths.”
–Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful picture book about adoption… This book is ideal for adopted children but is useful in introducing the concept of adoption to other children as well.  It would make a lovely baby gift.”
