“Accessible to the youngest students, this will also appeal to relatively seasoned first-graders, who can tackle the questions and take their time to pore over details in the stylized retro art.”—Booklist
“Readers won’t watch the clock; when the final bell rings—’Home!’—they’ll wonder how the day went by so fast.”—Horn Book Magazine
“Just right for sharing with one or two soon-to-be-schoolers or for independent browsing of the stylish illustrations.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This is the kind of book that could either be read through quickly, or lingered over…a great springboard in a classroom; after reading in a group setting, children could then concoct their own line adventure. Recommended.”—Library Media Connection
“The story’s interactive elements highlight the underlying message about the joys of learning.”—Publishers Weekly
“Practically a user’s guide for how an adult and child can engage in conversation while reading together…clever mixed-media artwork is brimming with familiar artifacts and tools, yet Ljungkvist’s clean-cut Scandinavian style and simplicity of composition keep the pages from being visually overwhelming.”—School Library Journal
