"Truly lovely. . . . It is indeed for all readers, all children and all adults. It shows children what's possible and it puts adults in a position in which we can see and understand everyone, not just the so-called able-bodied. It's fun, it's rhythmic, it's thoughtful." Michael Rosen, Children's poet and former UK children's Laureate on Just Because
"Children will easily engage with the emotions of a little girl who longs to be loved. . . . Children will talk endlessly about this book, and teachers will love it." Bookseller
"Rebecca Elliott sees and reads colors to great effect." Carousel
The book's illustrations are "expressive" and "inviting." —Examiner.com
"Elliot's lovely story is arrestingly told in beautiful, textured mixed-media illustrations that are evocatively minimalist and ingeniously composed." –Kirkus Reviews
