**STARRED REVIEW**
"It is a book chock-full of fun—what more could one want?"
— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"The tightly rendered illustrations, which usually appear in twos or three against white backgrounds, have a refreshing emotional reticence; the kids' happiness is shown as matter-of-fact and grounded rather than euphoric or manic. And then there are the descriptions themselves, eloquent in their unfussiness...Schwartz isn't the first to try a compendium of this sort, but she sets a new benchmark."
— Publishers Weekly

**STARRED REVIEW**
"A fun, engaging read."
— School Library Journal

"Schwartz’s distinctive pictures in brilliant colors would make anyone happy...a magical romp through the senses and delights of being human."
— Booklist

"It’s all very, very sweet, but with the occasional offbeat example that will satisfy out-of-the-box thinkers."
— The Horn Book Magazine
