Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rhyming stanzas explore the notion of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary ...Easy on the eyes and ears; excellent for bedtime."  Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Reviews November 1, 2016)

"A genial, dreamy girl narrates a sweet world of possibility in this cozy bedtime read....Taken together, the lulling lines and lovely artwork cultivate a snug, welcoming atmosphere ideal for one-on-one sharing before saying good night." — Booklist (Booklist November 15, 2016)

"Illustrator Castrillon debuts with a splash....Castrillon’s artwork carries the words to a place where birds bring tea and cupcakes to the window, thistly flowers grow as high as trees, and houses are just the right size for a single child. She’s a talent to watch. " Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly 11/21/16)

"Castrillon creates a dreamlike tone with her pencil illustrations,..A sweet bedtime selection." School LIbrary Journal (School Library Journal January 2017)

A Spring 2017 Indie Next Selection

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple book with so much to discover inside!
By Peggy on August 6, 2018
This is a delightful and different book! It is a simple book with wonderful illustrations. All of our kids love looking through this book and having it read to them (ages 6 months thru 4 years old). There is so much to discover on each page - and the kids are noticing new things whenever we read it. I highly recommend this book! The kids also love the book "Yellow Kayak", by the same author. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sentimental Favorite
By Bookgirl on October 18, 2019
Initially dismissive of what seemed to be overly sentimental, silly, sing-songy text, I now love this book enough that I purchased my own copy. I even told my husband (when we were led to believe I might have a serious health condition) that if anything should ever happen to me, I wanted him to give this book to my oldest daughter. Not only are the illustrations beautifully stylized, but the text has endeared itself to me--and to my four year old--over time. We often quote the last lines of the book as a reassurance of love for one another, often as a parting or bedtime gesture. Whenever I say, "If I had a little dream, I would name it You," my daughter responds, "You would make life magical, where wishes do come true."

5.0 out of 5 stars The sweetest read
By Rachel O. on September 5, 2020
Oh this is just the sweetest book I think I’ve ever purchased for my daughter. I have a list of Amazon books to buy for my young kiddos and I often base it on how aesthetically pleasing the covers are. While I know a gorgeous book does not always equate to a good read, this one surpassed my expectations. It’s also perfect for my 1st grader as she’s strengthening her reading skills. I would highly recommend this book on its own, but it really is fantastic for new and emerging readers. One of my favorites to reach for at bedtime and I’ve got it on my list of items to gift as well.
