Reviews & Awards

Take a look at our great reviews and awards.

“With the trademark rhyming pattern of the series, the story is a good opportunity for children, families, and educators to discuss what part we all can play in taking care of our environment.” Home Schooling Book Review

“Ian’s rich text is brought to life by Adrienne’s vivid illustrations. The story has a natural message about being polite, welcoming people, and helping others – even when they come from far away and don’t look like us. An important lesson for all. This one is a winner as it provides a ‘first language dictionary for the young ones.” Lisa Kay Hauser, national award-winning children’s book author, editor and grandmother of six.

“A gentle, comic treat with a subtle lesson about building character.” Kirkus Reviews
