Product Details


★ “Whether the reader is leaving for kindergarten, summer camp or college, the words offer reassurance that you’re free to leave home knowing there are loving arms ready and waiting for your return. In striking paint and collage artwork, Robinson uses a simple, flat perspective that employs the colors of burgundy, tan, black, and gray with punches of red and blue on pure white backdrops and to present sweet pictures with a multicultural cast of children. . . . A charming assurance about letting go of the things you love from the creators of When’s My Birthday?”—Booklist, Starred Review

★ “Done in paint and collage, the artwork utilizes simple shapes and textured brush strokes to depict an appealing cast of diverse children and an array of whimsically rendered animals and everyday objects. Striking a dream-nurturing balance between the commonplace and the magical, this lovely picture book is perfect for sharing one-on-one at bedtime or anytime.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

“Cheery rhythm and singing rhyme ask to be read aloud: ‘here’s a rock to skip and a coin to wish/ and a fork/ and a spoon/ and a cup/ and a dish.’ Robinson’s simple angular figures champion the low-key and the handmade (a cityscape with tall buildings and low vehicles resembles paper cutouts). . . . Robinson extends classic picture book scenes of play and home life to show all sorts of children finding magic in all kinds of places.”—Publishers Weekly

“Simple and nurturing, this will likely be loved by many a parent-child pair.”—Kirkus Reviews
