Starred Review, PublishersWeekly, May 30, 2011:
"Fisher (The Fantastic 5 & 10ยข Store) gives preschoolers a leg up on need-to-know information in this energetic collection."

Review, The Wall Street Journal, July 23, 2011:
"There's a faint haziness in Ms. Fisher's photographic style that gives her tableaux a sugared quality; you feel vaguely that you ought to be able to pluck the objects off the page and eat them."
