From School Library Journal
—The New York Times Book Review
A really engaging visual reading experience – moving from overviews to close ups, vignettes to double page spreads. It’s a very dynamic read – dramatic and tender by turns. My kind of visual storytelling!
Tavares (Lighter than Air) captures Red’s frantic search for Lulu, following the truck to New York City...The birds’ reunion is poignant and well earned, and their decision to stay in the city after the holidays poignantly shows how seeming misfortune can lead to unexpected and rewarding opportunities.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Tavares’s realistic watercolor and gouache paintings make the most of dramatic birds’-eye perspectives, while the story provides a child-friendly backstory for an annual NYC holiday attraction.
—The Horn Book
Tavares’s detailed watercolor-and-gouache illustrations expertly capture the seasonal atmosphere...A lovely New York story.
—School Library Journal
…a joyful and affecting picture book written and illustrated by Matt Tavares.
—The Wall Street Journal
With its bird’s-eye views, this wonderfully imagined, gorgeously illustrated ode to the world-famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will have young travelers begging Mom and Dad for a trip to the Big Apple.
Gorgeous artwork, with multiple wordless-pages, advances the tale. Best of all, kids will cheer at the dramatic moment when Red finds Lulu.
A Christmas book you should probably put on your permanent shelf...This is one of the best of the year.
—Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production
A touching, beautifully illustrated story.

I loved that the NY Public Library and Times Square were included. The history lesson in the back is great. We ended up pulling out the laptop and looking at pictures of the real Rockefeller tree and lighting ceremony online. So much of what we read at Christmas is make-believe... elves, Santa, etc that it was really nice to share a story with them that was based on an actual event -- apparently it's an event that has been going on for over 80 years.
I loved that the last picture in the book is the family planting a new tree where the old one used to be...
It's just a perfect story.
(By extension, it provided an easy way to to talk about and explore cardinals, cutting down trees, habitats, NYC, and the Rockefeller tree, if you're going for the educational side of things...)
