Publishers Weekly Starred Review says:
Rosenthal (I Wish You More) again demonstrates her ability to use wordplay to create stories with real emotional depth as she follows children through a day, described only in three-word, A-B-C phrases. It “All Begins Cheerily” with a boy waking up, followed by an afternoon of exploration (“Ants, Butterflies, Caterpillars”) and rowdy superhero play (“Attention! Be Careful!” says his harried mother). Later, a girl and her mother explore an “Active Bustling City,” and another child asks her father for a bedtime story reread: “ ‘Again!’ (Begs Convincingly).” Illustrator Lam’s debut couldn’t be more polished and confident: her palette seems to shift with the day’s waxing and waning light, while her crisp, screenprintlike images have an understated poise and precision that highlights the quiet magic of everyday moments. Ages 3–up. Author’s agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency. (Nov.)

My first grade class has loved being a part of the Global Read Aloud for the first time this year. Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s books are fantastic! The kids love them and they are worth reading again and again. Like a Picasso, the pictures and words at first seem simplistic, but there is so much more! We’ve enjoyed the humor, multiple meanings, and in depth exploration of many literary tools! My students have been inspired to talk, write, and create. We have connected with classrooms around the world including Hong Kong, Turkey, and the US. We have used new tools including Padlet, Skype, and Twitter. Students have seen the power of connecting with others through technology. We get ideas from others and we have an audience and feedback on our ideas. We have gotten to know an author as a real person! We love the Global Read Aloud and Amy Krouse Rosenthal!

Global Read Aloud has given our K/1 class the opportunity to share our thoughts on the books we read! We love the adventure of Tweeting, Skyping, Face-Timing, Padleting, Seesawing, etc. to communicate these! What an awesome experience!
