★ A sweet portrait of parental love, notable for its depiction of a two-mom family . . . Plenty of need for this warm hug of a book. --Kirkus, starred review Manushkin's hopeful lines emphasize both a feeling of abundance and a connection to the natural world . . . Cozy illustrations lend a classic sensibility to this incidentally inclusive bedtime tale for the youngest readers. --Publishers Weekly Alizadeh's pencil and digital illustrations are vivid and inviting . . . Manushkin's text imitates the nonsensical patter of a parent to a toddler . . . Alizadeh's loving illustrations of an interracial, two-mom family will fill a gap in most collections and circulate well in collections serving bikeable urban neighborhoods. --School Library Journal Children will delight in the feeling of wonder brought out by Alizadeh's cozy illustrations, and at the same time, be lulled by the hypnotic verse. --Booklist --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Special story, a rare findReviewed in the United States on 1 September 2020
Wonderful book — the illustrations are so beautiful, and the family portrayal so special and rare. Recommend for all LGBTQ families, and all families period! We loved the family representation and also the depiction of an urban environment — living in an apartment, biking, going to a busy farmers market. Really a gem. The story itself is a little confusing for very young audiences, but the illustrations make it one to keep revisiting for years to come.
Beautiful story about an LGBT+ familyReviewed in the United States on 15 July 2020
My non binary partner and I read this to our 5 month old and will continue to read it to him as he gets older so that he can see there can be love in ALL families. Beautifully illustrated.
