Industry Reviews

"Her children are so serious... and so unflappable... that they convey not just hope for the future, but a sense of manifest destiny." -- Publishers Weekly starred review

"Sweet but not saccharine and singsong but not forced, Martin's text is one that will invite rereadings as it affirms parental wishes for children while admirably keeping child readers at its heart."
--Kirkus starred review

This is suited to an older reader as it takes a lot of care to look after this book. Although it is a cute book, it's not very well written. It's also difficult to "hold". The outer cover slips off, and the hard cover is essentially blank (making it an unknown book of that cover comes off). The second to last page, being a double fold out is an odd place to have this. It stops the flow of the book. Overall, NOT toddler friendly. My children do like it, so it is begrudgedly read.
