“[The illustrations] neatly show a huge range of diversity in skin tone and family makeup, including two dads with a baby and a mixed-race family.” – Kirkus
“McFarlane and Vaughan transport readers to a diverse neighborhood of townhouses populated by families of all makeups and colors-in the span of a few homes there are single parents, interracial families, gay fathers, a child who uses a wheelchair, and others. It’s an easygoing and broadly appealing reminder that-no matter a family’s shape, size, or particular circumstances-affection is a constant.” – Publishers Weekly
“Vaughan’s energetic, brightly colored illustrations and diverse cast of characters (a biracial family, a girl in a wheelchair, a baby with two dads) will appeal to a wide variety of readers. The soft lines for noses, puppy
ears, and treetops contrast with the crisp lines of buildings, swing sets, and window frames which creates a sense of both groundedness and whimsy.” – School Library Journal
