Editorial Reviews

* The patience required to converse with a small person who wants to dictate every part of the interaction is sure to be familiar to parents, but the poetic text rises above the mundane and captures the beauty, energy, and innocence of these conversations and holds them up for readers to appreciate without becoming saccharine or trite." - School Library Journal, starred review * "Their simple back-and-forth dialogue speaks volumes about their strong father-daughter bond. As endearing and joyful as it is to read Waber's words aloud, it is Lee's illustrations that make this title truly special? Sublimely satisfying." - Kirkus, starred review "This vicarious outing is an excellent model of one-on-one interaction that might inspire young listeners to form their own questions. An easy text for new readers, it could also help tuck in a toddler with a sweet good night." -Horn Book Magazine "Lee's expressive artwork has a naive feel, well suited to Waber's childlike narration? the love this father and daughter share comes through loud and clear." -Booklist * "The easygoing verbal exchange and affectionate visuals celebrate a close father-daughter relationship while recognizing beauty in everyday simplicity." -Publishers Weekly, starred review "
