“This board book is perfect for little ones who are just learning how to interact with others . . . Soft backgrounds illuminate the story, whose diverse cast makes these lessons accessible to all” – Foreword Indies
“Seeboruth’s sparse, rhyming text—consisting of punchy, two-word sentences—delivers its message with aplomb . . . Corrin’s expressive, textured digital artwork ably brings the humorous but believable characters to life. Altogether, the book creates a faithful snapshot of toddler interactions that will make caregivers smile knowingly and teaches an important lesson without being preachy” – Kirkus Reviews
