Praise

Praise for THE COT IN THE LIVING ROOM

A Junior Library Guild Selection 
Featured in Parents Latina

* “The Cot in the Living Room beautifully captures the gifts we receive when we open our hearts to others.” — BookPage, starred review. 

“An important message about empathy, delivered with a light and skillful touch.” —School Library Journal

“Between clever quilted endpapers, Burgos and D’Alessandro set a comfy space for readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The final spreads … illustrate how understanding can alter a child’s perspective. This heartfelt and endearing story should strike a chord with many.” —Booklist

“Artwork by D’Alessandro, making her picture book debut, shows the family and their apartment in clean lines and soft, cotton-candy colors. … In this story about a tight-knit urban community by Burgos (Ana María Reyes Does Not Live in a Castle), parents with small children and tough schedules know they can depend on their neighbors for help. —Publishers Weekly

“If you are looking for titles to enhance lessons about predictions, character point of view, or empathy building among the students, this is a strong contender.” —School Library Connection

“Emotionally honest, child-centered story illuminating an aspect of some working/working class families’ lives rarely seen in picture books while underscoring the power of empathy and compassion, and the importance of community.” – Cooperative Children’s Book Center
