Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Autumn 2009 Kids' Indie Next List
“This is a lovely book, told in gentle verse, that takes a collection of family and friends through the course of a day. While the title suggests the big issues, the book magically affirms the importance of even the smallest creatures. Frazee's illustrations, as always, bring the book to even higher levels with her detail, humor, and a sweetness that never becomes saccharin. This is a beautiful book for every home, a perfect gift for a young child.”
-- Leslie Reiner, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL
