"The rhyming text is told in first person, with the repetitive, soothing refrain of the words from the title effectively echoing throughout" — Kirkus Reviews

"I love the rhyming text the book is written in, because part of the beauty of poetry is its role in being able to say so much in so few words. The story is also beautifully illustrated" — Scholastic Child Education PLUS
