    "Wow!! My eyes are still trying to focus. The bright color patterns will play tricks on your mind, but in a good way. Strange how just pictures can do that. this is a great book for little ones who eyes are still developing--maybe, seems like it would be. i personally love the bright colors and patterns, but also the color choices. Look at a picture for a few minutes then close your eyes, it's like a negative of a film! Love it!"

    " Audrey and Zach, Dad's children, serve as the story's joint narrators, and Keret, making his picture-book debut, beautifully captures the solemn cadences of their precocious nature.When Dad actually leaves his family, Audrey and Zach remain sanguine, confident of Dad's enduring affection: "even when he was away, he didn't forget about us."

    "This is a very good choice because it has great ratings. However, this isn't the best choice because there aren't enough reviews to make sure that the book is a quality book. There are other better reviewed books that would work better as a solution."
