Praise

★ “Imagery is presented in marvelous metaphors. . . Minter’s acrylic-wash prints soar. . . A warm, loving, necessary reminder of the power in families coming together.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Lyrical. . . a heartfelt story of family love, shared history, and connection to a place that binds everyone together.” —Booklist

★ “Minter’s illustrations, rendered in an acrylic wash, work in beautiful harmony with Lyons’s joyful portrait of a deeply loving multigenerational family. Carefully layered images, patterns, and textures reinforce the narrative links between family history, American history, ancestral land and nature, and the bonds of family… Readers will enjoy this moving celebration of familial love, history, and tradition. Highly recommended.” —School Library Journal, Starred Review

“A lushly illustrated tribute to family history. . . Lyons’s image-rich prose and Minter’s powerful acrylics. . . convey a sense of historical struggle alongside cherished tradition while capturing the experience of performance jitters.” —Publishers Weekly
