"A tender, breathtaking picture book that you'll read again and again."—A Best Children's Books of the Year, The Christian Science Monitor
"Rich in metaphor without an ounce of heavy–handedness, this timeless fable should be left out for a little one to come to and contemplate on their own, when the need arises."—Booklist, Starred Review
"Exhilarating . . . Graceful text and evocative illustrations combine in this story about the rewards of facing fears and trying something new."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"An appealing story about grief and acceptance. Recommended for public and school libraries as a tool for children who are experiencing grief. The tone is lighter than in many texts that deal with loss, and the book lends itself to discussion." —School Library Journal
