"A spectacular and awe-inspiring book about the power we all have to create change in our communities." —Toronto Star

“The immense potential of conquering your fears and having hope come to life in this picture book. Yeh’s book allows readers to explore (and interpret) at their own pace. The artwork is likewise compelling with the dark swirls depicted at the beginning of the book making way for brightness, and softer colors accompany simple prose.” —School Library Journal


“No matter what kind of darkness children are confronting, the book suggests there’s always a glimmer of hope to hold on to…. A sweet, upbeat guide to cultivating optimism in young children.” —Kirkus Reviews
