Praise

Kraegel’s text displays deep respect for both children’s quirks and their right to those quirks, Jameson’s mother over and over reinforcing for him that the decision (be in the wedding with black pants or in the congregation with green ones) is his. This quirky kid and his loving family will instantly endear themselves to readers.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This is a delightful book for all children who love to express themselves and for those who want to be who they are…The illustrations of Jameson are superb at depicting what the character is feeling—from anxiety over making a difficult decision to the elation he feels when wearing his favorite pants. A fun read-aloud, perfect for storytimes, and a great addition to most collections.
—School Library Journal

Kraegel’s watercolor-and- pencil illustrations make great work of Jameson’s poignant, meaningful facial expressions, which augment the joys and frustrations in the text. That Jameson is allowed to make his own decision is particularly empowering. Any kid with a favorite object will likely be charmed by Kraegel’s positive message here.
