  • O’Connell manages to once again create a story that will engross toddlers and encourage caregivers to make all interactions teachable moments for children.

    - Booklist

  • The text is short and sweet, even if viewers are never shown what’s in that square package. A wonderful lapsit to share one-on-one or in a small group.

    - School Library Journal

  • Bold patterns and bright colors will attract and hold young ones’ attention, and the clapping won’t hurt, either: “Clap for the baby holding an oval.” Light but sweet.
