KIRKUS REVIEW

A profound sense of gestall underlies this colorful and entertaining children's book. Betty Miles, whose text will immediately appeal to the very youngest reader, has written each line with meticulous care and imagination and Remy Charlip's vivid illustrations match the text in vigor and expressiveness. The world is everything, a postcard, a coming home, an instant, the world is you, the young reader is told. And in grasping this simply stated fact the child is led gently into a world of universal questions, and taught that there is no danger there.
