"A lovely story about courage and community with a darling protagonist."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Minimal, unadorned text mixes with watercolor and pen-and-ink pictures to create an appealing protagonist who has an admirable, self-possessed curiousness and always wears big yellow boots—readers can almost hear her clomping confidently through the pages."
— Publishers Weekly
"Appealing illustrations done in pen-and-ink and watercolor round out this stellar read-aloud and add to its subtle humor."
— School Library Journal
