H “Readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review) “This tender iteration of a familiar nighttime ritual will be equally welcomed by fond parents and those children for whom listening to stories is anything but a passive activity.” — Kirkus Reviews “Great fun for reading aloud.” — Booklist “This is one of the rare titles that will entertain both parent and child.” — School Library Journal

Putting a unique spin on “what goes around comes around,” David Ezra Stein’s charmingly illustrated story reminds us that adding even a small dose of kindness into the world is sure to spur more and more kindness, which could eventually make its way back to you! “Night and day, light and shadow, groups of old and young people spending time together: it’s a satisfying portrait of the feast of life.” — Publishers Weekly “A playfully profound picture book that does its part in passing on good feelings.” — Kirkus Reviews “His main characters are scruffy and fascinatingly individual, his settings are exuberant with color and light, and both are sure to elicit smiles in any kind of weather.” — The Horn Book “Realistic, heavily colored, and intensely detailed, the illustrations invite children to look closely and see the way people across the globe are connected. . . . A lovely way to look at life.” — Booklist
