  1. From Booklist
    Ages 4-8. In a quiet book that is something of a mood piece, a girl of about six spends time walking with her grandmother. They talk as they walk, look at the birds, and visit friends like Mr. Anton, who collects shells and starfish. They find things, too–a stone, a bottle cap, acorns. When the girl finds a dandelion in the grass, they decide to make a wish: “I wish I could always go walking with you,” the girl says, and Maga whispers, “Me, too.” The charming text captures the love between grandmother and granddaughter, and the art, though not reproduced in color in the galley, is well executed and touched with whimsy. As in many children’s books, grandmother Maga (white hair, a bit creaky, needing to rest often) seems on the old side for such a young granddaughter, but the bond between the two characters transcends time and age.

  2. From School Library Journal
    Kindergarten-Grade 5-A little girl and her beloved grandmother share a love of walking, nature, and one another in this poignant picture book. The child narrates the story, describing how she and her Maga walk slowly, take rests, talk and joke often, and visit people they know along the way. They stop frequently, looking at different shapes in the clouds, or gathering lemons from the tree of a friendly neighbor to save for lemonade. The text is warm and sweet, allowing the heartfelt emotions of the duo to shine through. “Maga lets a caterpillar crawl down her arm. It’s wrinkled and funny and slow. ‘Like me,’ Maga laughs.” Interacting wonderfully with the text, the illustrations glow with a combination of sunlight, warmth, and soft colors. This is a lovely read-aloud, and a useful story when highlighting either descriptive writing or memoirs for the elementary/middle-school set.
