Praise

From KIRKUS,

Starred Review:

“Imagery is presented in marvelous metaphors… Minter’s acrylic-wash prints soar… A warm, loving, necessary reminder of the power in families coming together.”

 

 

From SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL,

Starred Review:

“Minter’s illustrations, rendered in an acrylic wash, work in beautiful harmony with Lyons’s joyful portrait of a deeply loving multigenerational family. Carefully layered images, patterns, and textures reinforce the narrative links between family history, American history, ancestral land and nature, and the bonds of family… Readers will enjoy this moving celebration of familial love, history, and tradition. Highly ­recommended.”

From BOOKLIST:

“Lyrical…a heartfelt story of family love, shared history, and connection to a place that binds everyone together.”
