I LOVE this book so much. The fear of being forgotten on picture day and not being able to leave your mark is so relatable. The pictures are gorgeous and the glimpse into how Amira's family celebrates Eid filled my heart with happiness. The book made me want to color my hands with henna, dance, and celebrate the joy of being brown!

This was a "found on the shelves" title for me that demanded my immediate attention. The words so beautifully illustrate our dependence on the Earth and the interconnectedness of creatures great and small. Soyeon Kim's illustrations, with gorgeous colors and amazing cutouts, really add dimension and make this a book worth treasuring.

There are a lot of stories about cis children dealing with getting a younger sibling. Aidan's feelings are extra complicated because people keep asking his parents what gender the baby will be, and they didn't know his real gender until he was old enough to tell them. He wants everything to be perfect from the start for this baby! A beautifully written and illustrated book great for children of any gender.
