“The message is gentle but clear: Growing up often means growing pains, physical and emotional. Watching Olivia struggle shows young readers that it’s OK to be frustrated, angry, and even sad while growing up and moving on….Fantastic illustrations and a relatable story.” –Kirkus
“Each character is drawn with expressions that are sure to delight even the youngest children and certainly lend themselves to discussions about feelings and sharing…An endearing addition to libraries.” –SLJ
“A playful take on sibling jealousy and the metaphorical and literal growing pains that come from needing to let go of things that have outgrown their use… Even kids who aren’t strong readers will be able to tell Olivia’s feeling from her expressiveness, whether she’s pouting in jealousy or subtly gloating to her older brother.” –BCCB
