Product Details


A New York Public Library Best Book of the Year
BCCB Blue Ribbons List Selection

“Exciting . . . In kinetic illustrations, Soman champions diversity, inclusiveness, and the power of allowing children to play as they wish.” —Publishers Weekly

“A counting book that could also serve as a set of inclusivity instructions. . . . Inviting . . . Seamless . . . Diverse . . . Friendly . . . Bright . . . When, at sunset, the adults arrive [at the playground] to collect their children, Soman depicts what appear to be single parents, same-sex couples, grandparents, and a mother in a hijab; it’s a wonderfully mixed group. . . . This joyous celebration of play closes with an invitation to spot ten creatures in the park; viewers will be happy to return to the beginning to find them.” —The Horn Book (starred review)

“Most valuable . . . are Soman’s thoughtful, diverse depictions of the children and families . . . No two ways about it—this one is a delight.” —Kirkus

★ “Part counting book, part socialization celebration, and part story, this clever narrative . . . is an inviting and welcoming outing.” —BCCB (starred review)

“Celebrates the joy and energy of childhood . . . Dynamic . . . Children will easily see themselves in [these pages].” —Booklist
