A #1 Indie Bestseller
Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year
A BookPage Best Book of the Year

*
“Readers will feel the warmth of friendship and the wonder of the world as well. Stunning.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “An enchanting examination of the pleasure reaped from cultivating imagination, friendship, and memory.” —School Library Journal, starred review

* “Marcero works magic with prismatic watercolors, ink, and pencil, as her light-filled illustrations chronicle the young rabbits’ exploits and their appreciative wonder of the world around them . . . This joyful account of friendship will charm readers with the notion of capturing wind or a rainbow in a jar, but its deeper message of maintaining relationships over a distance will comfort those who have moved or know someone who has.” —Booklist, starred review

*In a Jar does what all the best picture books do: It captivates, entertains and leaves you with a reminder of magic still shimmering around the edges.” –BookPage, starred review

“Marcero provides a metaphor for the importance of capturing fleeting moments, and an image of a friendship that overcomes separation.” —Publishers Weekly

“Cozy yet also endearingly offbeat. This could make an interesting partner to Denos’ Here and Now in a celebration of moments, or it could couple with Doerrfeld’s Goodbye, Friend! Hello, Friend! for a discussion of how sharing feeds a friendship.” —BCCB

“This is a book about friendship and how true bonds can transcend geographical distance. This is one to remember when a child experiences the unexpected departure of a friend.” —School Library Connection

“Marcero uses delicate lines and vibrant colors to illustrate a tale of eccentricity and friendship . . . The details in Ms. Marcero’s beguiling pictures add a seek-and-find element to this tender story for children ages 3-7.” –The Wall Street Journal
