Review, The New York Times Book Review, December 2, 2007:
"An ultracharming picture book."
Starred review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, April 2007:
"There’s plenty to pore over in the detail-rich scenes, and the childlike but deft lines match the text’s exuberance . . . This is perfect family fare and a welcome departure from storybooks that assume the worst when a new life joins the family."
