—School Library Journal (starred review)
In simple, lilting text, our protagonist discusses Mom’s and Dad’s superlative traits and describes special time spent with each of them...Patricelli’s recognizable colorsaturated and textured art, with thick black outlines and rosy-cheeked characters, is always welcome, and now, especially, pandemic-weary parents may appreciate the boost.
