Booklist Reviews 2017 April #1

A young girl with a vivid imagination has no end of secrets to tell: trees make the best umbrellas, you can sweeten tea with sunshine, and sunbeams lead directly to treasure. But what good are secrets if you have no one to share them with? Our young protagonist knows the truest treasure of all is a friend, and so she goes next door to visit her neighbor. Together, they share their secrets with each other and the nighttime sky. The simplicity of the story is balanced by the richly illustrated, lush backyard gardens in which it is set. Each image is spread across two pages, creating wide visual space and room for whimsical details; the bright-eyed garden creatures are especially charming. Dominated by the natural surroundings, the images convey intimacy and solitude but never feel lonely. Muted greens and blues lend softness, while solitary colors catch the eye. An homage to the imagination, this gentle and subdued story celebrates the everyday magic of children's adventures. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

A little girl heads outside on a windy day with her yellow raincoat, umbrella, and lamb-like little dog. After waiting out a rain shower in a tree house, she floats her open umbrella in a puddle, and then sets up a pretend tea party in a sandbox. This quiet picture book, with its spare, whimsical text and illustrations in muted colors, celebrates the joys of old-fashioned playtime. Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2017 #3

Whimsical text ("Secrets are for whispering") and illustrations in muted colors convey the thoughtful interior life of a little girl's day at play. She heads outside on a windy day with her yellow raincoat, her umbrella, and her lamb-like little dog, noticing that the sound of the blowing leaves is like "whispers hid[ing] in trees." After waiting out a rain shower in a tree house, she floats her open umbrella in a puddle, and then sets up a pretend tea party in a sandbox, with seashells for cups and saucers. Each double-page spread holds just one phrase or sentence (occasionally, two), but the story is told largely through the illustrations, so children will linger to see what the girl and dog do next. Zakimi's digitally colored pencil illustrations play with the thickness of lines to give texture. Toward the end, the little girl (who is white) visits with a brown-skinned friend, and the two return together to the tree house with a telescope to look at the sky: "Stars keep your secrets. They only tell the trees. And trees make great umbrellas. Which you already know." This quiet picture book celebrates the joys of observation and old-fashioned playtime. susan dove lempke Copyright 2017 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

PW Reviews 2017 March #2

As this pensive story opens, a girl sits curled up by a window; her dog gazes out at the garden, where rain falls. "I know lots of secrets," the girl says, addressing readers. "Like... Secrets are for whispering." A page turn shows her out in the garden, dressed in a raincoat, viewed through leafy branches ("Whispers hide in trees"). "Trees make great umbrellas," reads another spread, as the girl sits in a tree house with her dog, protected from the rain. Her linked musings progress ("Sunshine marks the spot... for finding buried treasure. True treasure is a friend"), and she's joined by a friend who helps her retrieve a telescope that they use to stargaze under the same "umbrella" of a tree. Zakimi (Teddy & Co.) draws animals and plants and their varied textures with care, quietly underscoring the small wonders found in a backyard; matte paper and a restrained palette add to the sense of tranquility. George's (The Lost Gift) poem celebrates nature, friendship, and understanding things not just with the head but with the heart. Ages 3–7. Agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (May)
