The bright, bold art in this book will appeal to preschoolers, and the spare text will keep them from getting wiggly. The frontispiece bookplate, which says "This book is gifted to ___ from ___ because you are loved," signals the book's intent: to reassure kids they're loved.

But the text itself might've used a little more TLC. It starts off somewhat choppy and flatfooted, then takes flight in heightened lyricism: "Was my voice your nighttime chorus, with the rain and chirping bugs?" And the rhyme is uneven. Still, young readers can snuggle into the cozy story-time love.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
