A NCTE Notable Poetry Book

“A simple yet delightful collection of poems from Singer. (She) turns the spotlight on challenges that may seem mundane to grown-ups but are incredibly meaningful…The individual poems are short and very approachable; it’s clear Singer kept her audience in mind while penning each one. Teachers and caregivers will appreciate the ability to pick up and set aside the book at will, reading only one or two poems or the entire collection in one go. The illustrations…are very in-tune with the offering. Soft lines and smudged shapes help to steer the interest level, and the diverse cast is particularly notable. This encouraging, kid-centric collection of poems is a fun and approachable homage to iconic rites of passage.” – School Library Journal

“Acclaimed poet Singer celebrates the milestones in a young child’s life… through a series of poems that, like children, are unique, at times unpredictable, and always lively. Christy’s digital illustrations in soft pastel hues reflect children and families of all races and cultures. Children are captured…full of energy and confidence. There’s something for every child here.” — Booklist

“Award-winning poet Singer explores the stumbles and triumphs that go hand in hand as preschoolers become big kids…(T)hese 19 poems encapsulate the myriad experiences of a diverse cast of grade-schoolers…Singer’s observations span a variety of poetic forms and rhyming schemes…(and) Christy’s watercolor images capture gap-toothed grins and snaggle-brow frowns with equal aplomb.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Singer’s genial poems focus on childhood milestones…Christy illustrates in cheerful, jewel-toned digital spreads, capturing Singer’s relatable moments of frustration, progress, and pride.” Publishers Weekly
