Praise

“The understated story allows readers to see a community living close to the natural world and they will appreciate a tale in which a young person has an important decision to make.” — The Horn Book 

“Menezes’s words and Siems’s portraits of the Amazon’s miraculous profusion of life make readers long to know more.” – Publishers Weekly  

“A thoughtful contemplation on how our actions affect life on our planet.” — Kirkus Reviews 

★★★★★”Simple yet nuanced…. The story is all the more thought-provoking because of the detailed earth-toned watercolor illustrations that depict the beauty of the Amazon and the wild and plant life that call it home….Young readers who enjoy “eco-fiction” will find this to be an enjoyable read. Those wishing to introduce youngsters to more diverse selections will appreciate the indigenous characters and the Amazon backdrop.” —
Youth Services Review

“Lovely illustrations provide the perfect backdrop for this tender story of environmental awareness and the choices we make.” — Kendal Rautzhan, Books to Borrow, Books to Buy, syndicated column

“We read dozens and dozens of books and I love it when I see one make a particular impact on my children….My kiddo was riveted to the story and they were so sweetly impressed with the young boy’s choice of selflessness and sacrifice in the story….rewarding and powerful.” — Booknerd Mommy

“A beautiful book….highly recommend[ed]. Read it to children, grandchildren and students.” – Kiss the Book Jr. blog
