I really love the whimsy of the illustrations. Each picture had lovely little touches in the details. Additionally, the colour scheme was nice and did not feel trite or overdone, instead favouring sort of a soft sunset palate. I really appreciated the diversity portrayed in the ethnicity and types of families portrayed but thought that some of the skin tones should probably been a little darker and some of the features less recognizably "white." The text was nice- rhyming and lightly sweet. In some cases, the words seemed to be oddly broken between spreads, but that only bothered me toward the end of the book and I couldn't quite figure out why.
