“The roly-poly pair are delightfully expressive and adorable, and the sentiments expressed are those caregivers appreciate and celebrate in their children.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Another sweet book bearing a message of unconditional love and support . . . The gender-neutral animal pairs could easily represent a number of close relationships, from parent and child to grandparent and grandchild to an older and younger sibling . . . A perfect choice for one-on-one sharing and a comforting bedtime story.” —School Library Journal on I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO
“The last lines, echoing the premise of the whole book, will be reassuring to most . . . Sweet.” —Kirkus Reviews on I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO
“Prasadam-Halls's rhymed couplets have a pleasing lilt . . . The gender-neutral, cross-species portrait of affection gives the book the potential for broad appeal--the animals' relationship could easily be between a single or adoptive parent and his or her child, or also between two close friends.” —Publishers Weekly on I LOVE YOU NIGHT AND DAY
“Brown's soft, full-spread artwork nicely matches Prasadam-Halls's brief rhyming verse . . . This gentle, reassuring story is a calming tale just right for family or group sharing.” —School Library Journal on I LOVE YOU NIGHT AND DAY
