Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—With sympathy and symmetry, Pham recreates the world pre-pandemic in digital illustrations that have the flow and dynamism of watercolors. She imagines a world where people from all walks of life enjoy being outside engaging in many activities until one day when it all comes to a halt—almost everyone goes inside. So begins this enlightening story of how a deadly pandemic forces everyone indoors. Image after vivid image shows people of many races and ethnicities going about their business and then the abruptly empty streets. Wildlife returns to the suburbs. Through the illustrated portrait-like scenes, people are shown in the hospital, facing job loss, death, upending of routines. Pham underscores the lives of essential workers and their dedication. She also touches on the Black Lives Matter protests during the summer of 2020, offering educators or parents a path for frank discussion about racial injustice. This hopeful work encourages readers to consider their own, ongoing paths through the pandemic, without ever denigrating or playing down the seriousness. VERDICT Poetic understatement and somber images capture the new normal in this essential purchase.—Annmarie Braithwaite, New York P.L.

LeUyen Pham is the award-winning and critically acclaimed illustrator of more than one hundred books for children. LeUyen (pronounced Lay-Win) is the New York Times bestselling illustrator of the Julianne Moore’s picture book series, Freckleface Strawberry, Kelly DiPucchio’s picture book Grace for President, and Shannon and Dean Hale’s middle grade series Princess in Black. LeUyen is also the illustrator of God’s Dream by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Alvin Ho series by Lenore Look, the Vampirina Ballerina picture book series by Anne Marie Pace, and The Boy Who Loved Math by Deborah Heiligman. Her more recent books include Caldecott Honor Book Bear Came Along by Richard Morris and her self-authored Outside, Inside, a recollection of our year in lockdown.

LeUyen is the author and illustrator of Big Sister Little Sister, There’s No Such Thing as Little, A Piece of Cake, All the Things I Love About You, and The Bear Who Wasn’t There. She has also contributed to the Piggy and Elephant Like Reading! book series with her book The Itchy Book. She is also the co-creator, along with Shannon Hale, of the groundbreaking bestselling graphic memoirs Real Friends and Best Friends.

Born in Vietnam, LeUyen and her family fled Vietnam in the final days of the Vietnam War. Growing up in Southern California, LeUyen always loved to doodle and draw, but her mother insisted she become a lawyer. For two years, LeUyen attended UCLA, where she majored in political science. Fortunately, the head of the art department spotted her artistic talent and helped her change course. LeUyen got an interview at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, won a scholarship to pay the tuition, and spent the next three years in an accelerated program and earned a degree in illustration. Following school, LeUyen worked as a layout artist for DreamWorks Feature Animation, and illustrated books on the side. Her first picture book was Can You Do This, Old Badger? and was written by Eve Bunting.

These days, LeUyen lives in Los Angeles with her husband Alex (who is also an artist), and their two adorable sons, Adrien and Leo. She also has a cat named Sardine and a gecko named Kumquat. She adores traveling and speaking, but given her way would spend all her time making Star Wars-themed birthday cakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and loss, beauty and hope
Reviewed in the United States on January 5, 2021
I only made it a few pages before the floodgates opened. Pham's book so accurately- and achingly- captures what this pandemic has felt like (outside and inside). Her text is simple and straightforward enough for my 4 year old son to relate to, but the nuanced pictures are next level and gave me all the feels. Extraordinary. It perfectly captures the myriad emotions in this new reality, but still ends on a note of hope. And definitely read the author's note about where she found inspiration and the hardest illustrations for her to draw. Can't recommend highly enough, especially for young kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story and images, must-have
Reviewed in the United States on March 29, 2021
This book was beautifully written. It describes the world during a pandemic in a way that is understandable and doesn't ever mention words like "coronavirus, pandemic, etc". My girls are 3 and 5 and loved the book. They were able to relate to the story, and enjoyed the pictures as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful words and respect to the essential workers, but a bit hard for kids to get
Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2021
Personally I like this book a lot and I think it's a great way to summarize last year (and the onging year...) However, from my 6 yr son's view, he cannot get most of meaning under the beautiful lines presented, so maybe it's better for him to revisit it when he's older. I thought before purchase that there will be some more explanation about the topic, but it's more like a poem that the parent maybe need to do a lot more explanation while reading. So I think this is a more parent/teacher guided book rather than a book a kid can appreciate by himself.
