School Library Journal Review

PreS-K‘Evie, a little girl in her pajamas, wants to do something, so she prepares by getting dressed. Everything seems to flow perfectly. She wants something new to wear and there on a hook is a new cap. She wants something new to play with and her grandfather makes her a kite. All through her lucky day when everything goes right, she is surrounded by her loving mother, grandmother, sister, and father. It seems too perfect and it is. It is only a song sung by her father. But if you want to hear it again, all you have to do is go back to the beginning. The colors and shapes are bright and basic, as are the words that run along the bottom. The backgrounds are undetailed color washes. They put the focus on the child and her interactions with her family. This book is as warm as a blanket wrapped around you with a hug, just when you need it. Deceptively simple and lovely.‘Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
