Published: HarperCollins - January 5th, 2021

Most people can relate to the journey the narrator takes us on when she shows us how she looks like her family and how they look like her. She shows the interactions she has with them (the scene with her little sister dancing is one many a sibling has probably been part of). The art makes the words come to life. Descriptions like “glow like warm tea” and “crinkle into crescent moons” are more alive when seen in the bold, bright, beyond detailed story. Diversity is celebrated poetically. All ages can enjoy this amazing new picture book. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
