CRITICS HAVE SAID
- This charming story celebrates the anticipation of a new life and its long-awaited appearance.
–Maryann H. Owen, School Library Journal
- A deceptively simple, joyous offering, this will surely enliven story hours, and its enthusiastic tone may rub off on kids who are facing the impending arrival of a new sibling with decidedly less eagerness.
–Gillian Engberg, Booklist
- The visuals convey a sense of motion throughout this harried story, and it helps young readers think about life and life cycles on the farm.
–Curry Coates, Children
