  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
    This book is a meditative poem about being and becoming. The illustrations are striking, with bold and muted colors painted with ink and watercolor as well as textures created by monoprinting and digital collage. A strength of this book is the diversity of the people depicted—a variety of ages, abilities, body shapes, and skin tones are included. The simple lines that draw attention to everyday phenomena, such as rain forming in the belly of a cloud and grass pushing up through cement, could serve as inspiration for a poetry writing unit. Some elements may distract from the flow of reading, such as the meta-ness of the book itself being featured and read in the story, the outlines of bodies in dreamlike landscapes, and the somewhat random subject changes in what the narrator is noticing. That aside, the story has a quiet tone appropriate for bedtime reading or perhaps a storytime about mindfulness, and it would be a beautiful addition to large picture book collections.
