"Rocklin's simple text will help religiously observant young listeners recall their own family experiences, while Filipina's colorful, cartoon-style artwork will trigger visual memories of these events . . . a good choice for religious schools and observant families with young children."
-- Booklist Online

"This unnamed girl is warmhearted, generous and utterly charming as she embraces every moment and sees goodness and joy all around her, all expressed, with great enthusiasm, in simply stated declarative sentences. Filipina's lovely, warmly hued illustrations beautifully complement and greatly enhance the text with detailed depictions of all the happy events."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Vibrant, playful watercolor drawings depict each Shehechiyanu occasion with humor and excitement, while the concise text communicates just what being thankful is all about. Children (and others) will appreciate both the message and the accompanying illustrations as they learn to recognize how many opportunities life presents for Shehechiyanu."
