  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 March #2
    In this quiet pseudo–fairy tale, three sisters are rewarded for their generosity. In an introduction, coauthor Julianna Margulies explains that she first heard this story from her father, who would tell it to his three daughters when they were children. In the story, three sisters go to the zoo every Saturday with their dad, where they are given money for a treat. Instead of buying something for themselves, the girls buy food for the animals. Witnessing their generosity, a balloon man gives them each a balloon, and that night, the balloons take them on a magical journey through the sky, where they see animals, angels, and birds. The illustrations tie the story together, and each girl is represented by a different color (blue, red, and yellow), and these colors are echoed in the backgrounds. There are some religious undertones, and some younger readers may grow restless toward the end, but this modern fable is a lovely tribute to giving. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
