«Celebrates an interracial love affair between two women…. Rare and refreshing to see a lesbian couple appear in a picture book outside the context of motherhood.”
«A traditional, magical fairy tale for kids about the power of knowing your own mind. A tale of equality, and above all, a story about love. …All of [NubeOcho’s] books promote respectful attitude towards all types of diversity. They are also a playful medium that makes it easier to engage in first experiences and feelings that the little ones may not easily understand.»
“With the necessary, growing dialogue fueled by We Need Diverse Books focused on the domestic publishing industry, what a relief to know that diversity has international supporters and creators, as well…. succinct, straight-forward writing style is complemented by artist Elena Rendeiro who makes her picture book debut. Her watercolor palette …and fluid, atmospheric style embodies graceful motion. Multiple wordless double-spreads add enhancing details to the story – including landscapes, interiors, backgrounds, all better shown than told….As books hit Stateside shelves this month, [Publisher NubeOcho’s] reception will surely be an interesting journey to watch.”
