"[An] unpanelled graphic story. . . . Pairing animated, thoughtful
illustrations and simple text with a story focused on
determination, this book is a perfect pick for new readers, both
nervous and brave."-School Library Journal, Starred Review
"This title will be cherished by librarians, educators, and caregivers for its simple yet direct message but also by young readers, who will see themselves reflected in the main character. When it comes to excellent books, Emberley does it! Joyfully encouraging-just what uncertain little ones need as they make their first forays into independence."-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"The all-dialogue text, with just a handful of words in total, is easy to read and will give new readers, too, the self-assurance finally enjoyed by our main character. Lively cartoony illustrations with plenty of white space provide humor and relatability."-The Horn Book
