"Readers will respond to the child’s confidence by being proud of their own understanding of the world."
— School Library Journal
"Sara Gillingham’s colorful pictures, which, with their occasional offsets, look like hand-made prints, show the girl in the process of these and other discoveries: playing outdoors, sledding with friends and standing behind her father at the stove."
