Reviews

A thought-provoking and evocative book. --Kirkus Reviews


A thought-provoking and evocative book. --Kirkus Reviews Lyrical writing ( the microscopic elegance of fractals in the snow ) and graceful illustrations together convey the idea that learning opens up a whole world. Mercurio does more than nudge kids in the direction of STEAM fields; she celebrates the beauty of discovery and the elegance of flight. --Publishers Weekly Mercurio's gorgeously poetic text effortlessly balances the wonders of the natural world with the wonders created by scientists and engineers. Her repeating refrain as Nanda gets bigger and bigger ensures that this story is comforting to its youngest readers, while including enough variation to inspire older ones. Corace's gouache, ink and pencil spreads are always warm and bright, anchored by geometric shapes and patterns . . . The illustrations reinforce the text's premise that, with encouragement and self-motivation, Nanda will continue to feel secure in her safe, and warm, and small world, even as its boundaries expand. --Shelf Awareness
