Reviews from Around the World "Freedman’s art is dreamy and soft. She creates clouds and leaves with watercolors that feather on the page. Young animals play together in the natural settings that the objects originated in. There are puddles, mud, stones underground, and more. Then the house, solid and warm, lit with by a fireplace, still open to dreams. A brilliant picture book that will entrance young readers, little builders and budding scientists." - Tasha Saecker, Amazon
"The few words in this poetic, free-verse narrative left me breathless. Paired with illustrations which intersperse equally perfect spare-on-white spreads with gloriously evocative and emotive, subtly-colored double page spreads, this book is a marvel. The underlying concept could be as bare and boring as mud, literally, but instead is an intensely loving and warm-hearted experience, wrapping readers in insight, emotion, and a comforting curiosity." - Sandy Brehl, Goodreads
