A beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion of poet­ry edit­ed by Paul B. Janeczko, illus­trat­ed by Hye­won Yum.“Yum’s trade­mark col­ored pen­cil and water­col­or illus­tra­tions are full spread. Graph­ic place­ment is well done, allow­ing Yum’s art to cra­dle each piece. Peo­ple and places are diverse in artis­tic expres­sion, allow­ing read­ers to rec­og­nize them­selves in dif­fer­ent poems and increas­ing under­stand­ing for dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions. … A first pur­chase for all libraries serv­ing young chil­dren, this is an out­stand­ing poet­ry com­pi­la­tion about the mean­ing of home.” (School Library Jour­nal)
