FIVE STARRED REVIEWS FOR NOW!*"Portis perfectly captures how children experience the world, the immediacy and magic of it all; exuberant and quiet, simple and complex, and extremely satisfying." - Kirkus Review, starred review*"Thoughtful without being preachy and meditative without being boring, Now should prove to be a favorite for today-and well into the future."-Horn Book, starred review*"This childlike ode to the delights of living each moment to the fullest is an absolute charmer and, like Portis's Wait, may even encourage adults to notice and relish the world around them. An essential purchase for group and individual sharing."-School Library Journal, starred review*"Sweet, charming and destined to be a favorite."-Shelf Awareness, starred review*"Cozy and subtly profound, this is perfect for one-on-one sharing."-Booklist, starred review
