★ “This graceful, meticulously detailed picture book is a loving ode to two cultures . . . Young readers will want to circle back to pore over the precise renderings of each place’s characteristics and to relive the day with Nana, Nenek, and Nina.”—BCCB, starred review
★ “[Ferneyhough’s] beloved memories clearly inspire her whimsical, heartwarming debut, painted on tea-strained paper with gorgeous watercolors, all dazzlingly enhanced by her ingenious presentation.”—Shelf Awareness, starred review
★ “Simultaneous portrayals cleverly elevate Ferneyhough’s picture book debut . . . Balancing images, patterns, and hues, these juxtapositions convey the ease with which Nina lives in three cultures—and the affection she receives in each—in a book that conveys differences and similarities bound together by love, and offers a joyful narrative of multicultural childhood.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Though life with each of her grandmothers is different, ultimately Nina finds love with both of them in this gentle tale. The illustrations are studded with homey details, and the warm tones add to the welcoming and cozy atmosphere. A lovely story, grounded in visual details, about how identity can be uncomplicated.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This engaging book will widen the world for young listeners and their families.”—School Library Journal

“In whichever setting she finds herself, Nina feels secure in her family’s love and secure in her own identity as a contemporary bicultural child.”—The Horn Book
