"An appealing story about grief and acceptance. Recommended for public and school libraries as a tool for children who are experiencing grief. The tone is lighter than in many texts that deal with loss, and the book lends itself to discussion." — School Library Journal
"Rich in metaphor without an ounce of heavy–handedness, this timeless fable should be left out for a little one to come to and contemplate on their own, when the need arises."—Booklist, starred review
"Exhilarating . . . Graceful text and evocative illustrations combine in this story about the rewards of facing fears and trying something new." ;mdashKirkus Reviews, Starred
