Reviews

"In the world, there are different kinds of people. Some live up above and some live down below." from the book" -In the world, there are different kinds of people. Some live up above and some live down below.- -- from the book -A gentle and well-designed introduction to recognizing different points of view - and a reminder that people are the same wherever they live.- Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW, May 28, 2012 -A visually stunning, gently restrained picture book that should be high up on readers' lists.- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW, July 15, 2012 -A great story-starter for many disciplines. It can be used to introduce little ones to the concept of social studies, geography, and even the curious law of gravity.- Picture Book Depot, September 6, 2012 -Broader lessons are left to be intuited, something to ponder over juice box and Goldfish. Valdivia's deceptively simple illustrations also merit further exploration.- Bruce Handy, The New York Times, August 27, 2012 "A gentle and well-designed introduction to recognizing different points of view - and a reminder that people are the same wherever they live."
