From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 In warm honey and gold tones, this picture book marks the end-of-day tiredness and comforting rituals of family life. An exhausted mom gets the girls their evening bath, and she's relieved when her daughters offer to tell the bedtime story. Mom falls asleep, and the girls help her undress and put on her pajamas, tuck her into bed, and give her a kiss. When dad comes home, he gets his daughers to bed and thanks them for taking such good care of mom. This book is extraordinarily good at conveying mutual affection, devotion, and the reliance of parents on their children. Many picture books show how parents nurture their offspring, but few show how children contribute affection and trust to family life. This book gives off a great sense of reality, ordinariness, and familial love in the manner of Vera B. Williams' work. The story is laid out in double pages, and this slows the telling and requires children to look attentively at the watercolor and pencil drawings. Books, laundry, flowers in a vase, and lunch pails are scattered in these rooms, and the details tell what kind of a family this is. Their intense dark hair and black eyes draw readers immediately to them, and the warm colors which surround them will reassure children of their deep affection for one another. The cover drawing is a striking, touching icon of love. The pages showing dad in overalls, his arm around the girls in protection, are no less moving. An original, deeply felt book that should touch the hearts of a wide audience. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.
