★ "The award-winning team behind Last Stop on Market Street portrays Carmela’s Spanish-speaking community as a vibrant place of possibility, and Robinson’s acrylic-and-cutout spreads introduce readers to street vendors, workers in the fields, and sweeping views of the sea. Sensitively conceived and exuberantly executed, Carmela’s story shines."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “Like still waters, de la Peña and Robinson’s story runs deep. It finds beauty in unexpected places, explores the difference between what’s fleeting and what lasts, acknowledges inequality, and testifies to the love shared by an African-American boy and his grandmother.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “De la Peña and Robinson here are carrying on for Ezra Jack Keats in spirit and visual style. This quietly remarkable book will likely inspire questions… it will also have some adult readers reaching for a tissue.”—The Horn Book, starred review
“The sharp illustrations — in bold, and cheerful primaries — get CJ’s restless energy and curious postures exactly right. The voices of CJ and his grandmother carry the story along in subtle point and counterpoint so that at this book’s quiet close you feel like you’ve been listening to a song.”—The Boston Globe
★ “With the precision of a poet, Matt de la Peña chronicles a boy's heartwarming Sunday morning routine with his nana. Christian Robinson's uplifting palette and culturally diverse cast brightens the rainy-day backdrop.”—Shelf Awareness, starred review

Illustrator Robinson knows just how to make a little girl stand out in a busy city and he gets all her facial expressions, simplistic and clear. De la Pena seems to know something about brothers and sisters and their invisible, powerful bonds. This book will make a good bedtime story or read-around at school, for ages 3-6, perhaps.
Each page had several subtle points being made. Well done for a college paper...but not in a children's book. One or two overall subtle themes throughout the book to push the writers social agenda would have a good impact on my kid's world view. I appreciate that kinda book.
I got the strong sense that this book was crafted to target certain parents so they feel like they are 'doing their part' for diversity and social equality.
I give the book two stars not because the book is pushing an agenda, but because it does it so poorly.
I found myself skipping parts of the story, and making up my own. As an immigrant myself, I definitely skipped the "papers" part of the book - the last thing I need is for my kids to be scared that I wont be able to come home, since I am not a citizen. Geez.
This book may be more appropriate for an 8 - 10 crowd. Definitely not age 5.
The illustrations are gorgeous.
