“This celebration of cross-generational bonding is a textual and artistic tour de force.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Like still waters, de la Peña and Robinson’s story runs deep. It finds beauty in unexpected places, explores the difference between what’s fleeting and what lasts, acknowledges inequality, and testifies to the love shared by an African-American boy and his grandmother.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“De la Peña and Robinson here are carrying on for Ezra Jack Keats in spirit and visual style. This quietly remarkable book will likely inspire questions… it will also have some adult readers reaching for a tissue.”
The Horn Book, starred review

“With the precision of a poet, Matt de la Peña chronicles a boy’s heartwarming Sunday morning routine with his nana. Christian Robinson’s uplifting palette and culturally diverse cast brightens the rainy-day backdrop.”
