Rosen’s rhyming text has a relaxed, unforced feel, and his story is a nice mix of the practical and the fanciful. Tyler’s warm watercolors add a dreamy layer of imagination to the story. A lovely treatment of a perennially popular topic. —Kirkus Reviews
Nicely varied, the verse is well attuned to preschoolers’ interests, while Tyler’s large-scale, sweeping scenes offer details for kids to discover and enjoy. An enjoyable journey for the younger set. —Booklist
