Is It Any Good?

The poetic lines of this gentle book are simple yet refreshing. Expressed in handwritten text, graceful yet without flourish, they present the beautifully sentimental dreams of a mother who is watching her child sleep. SOMEDAY is an expression of love that is meant to be shared, though it's written more to the motherly sentiment than to the child. Slightly reminiscent of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree, it presents the same gentle truth about the circular nature of birth, life, and aging.

If you are familiar with the Judy Moody books, you will recognize the muted pen/ink and watercolor illustrations with which Peter Reynolds enlivens the text. Also soft and gentle, they add to the heartfelt flow of the words as they sprawl across the uncluttered page.

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.
