PRAISE FOR Adventures With Barefoot Critters:
"Ample use of white space sets off the charming watercolour-and-gouache illustrations in muted colors. The many details on each page render a delightful glimpse into the animals' cozy lives. Children will have fun discovering each creature's personality." --Booklist
"Furry mammals, birds, and at least one heart-stealing triceratops caper through the seasons . . . Through the medium of watercolour, White creates images that are delicate and detailed, inviting the preschool child to linger and to imagine. All in all, this is a beautiful and calming bedtime story--best read in good light." --Deakin Review of Children's Literature
"[C]aptured my heart the moment I laid eyes on [it] . . . The critters are just as cute as can be . . . This book makes me want to learn how to draw... and spend more time in my garden... and explore the seashore more often... and enjoy all of the little things in life!" --Sew Creative blog
