“Liz Garton Scanlon’s tribute to the harmony and cohesiveness of the world “follows a circle of family and friends through the course of one day.” This is a lovely animated adaptation of the 2010 Caldecott Honor Book, illustrated by Marla Frazee...Narrator Joanne Woodward reads with warmth and conviction, savoring each word, gently contributing to an overall feeling of unity and well-being.” -- Edie Ching, Booklist


“...beautiful, fully animated...carefully preserves award-winning illustrator Marla Frazee’s style. Highly recommended.” -- Video Librarian (3.5 stars)


“This is a wonderful way to enjoy the book and, perhaps, see connections that might not otherwise be obvious...This thought-provoking, warm presentation will fuel viewers’ imaginations.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)
