Praise

“Rocks with simple, solid rhymes (encouraging participation and pleasingly predictable to listeners). . . . A joyful, one-sided conversation that narrates the everyday pleasures that spring from the care for a small child. . . . Visually describe[s] the variety of tiny experiences a single day with a toddler brings as well as a parent’s intense focus on their little one. . . . Cozy, predictable, cheerful and brimming with motherly love—a dependably pleasing read-aloud for the smaller set.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Endearing. . . . Easy to imagine how these pages could become a go-to source of calm and comfort. Ashman and Byun make a case that in both noticing and being noticed, we are loved and lucky.”—Publishers Weekly

“Ashman deftly integrates rich vocabulary into her couplets. . . . The soft colors and spare details suit the intended young audience.”—School Library Journal

“Playful . . . captures the special, loving relationship between parent and toddler. . . . The bouncing, enthusiastic toddler depicted in Byun’s ink-and-watercolor illustrations perfectly matches Ashman’s jaunty, rhythmic lines. . . . Little ones will easily relate to many of Buttercup’s moments. . . . This cozy title is a treat to read aloud for little ears, and a great fit for bedtime. . . . About unconditional love in both big and small moments.”Booklist
