Industry Reviews

"Colors are bright without being garish and there's a sense of joy throughout. A different way of viewing the world around us."--Kirkus Reviews "Colorful illustrations full of swirling movement enhance the playfulness of the verses. These imaginative poems could be used to inspire children's own creative writing."--School Library Journal
