Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Rice
"Go ahead, 'Manda," she says, "tell me what it is you like in this world." The story begins just after Amanda's friend Bobby steals the ball away from her during a game. This upsets Amanda, but her Aunt Ruby talks with her. She encourages Amanda to think of things that make her feel good. While Amanda nestles in her arm, Aunt Ruby shares her list of things that give her good feelings: the enjoyment of mixing blueberries, strawberries, and peaches together and seeing the bright colors and glistening juices; listening to the sound of Mr. Franklin's sax while Callie sings along; and sometimes even a dark storm, knowing that everyone is safe inside together. A warmhearted story, with exquisite illustrations to match.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3`Manda has definitely had better days. When Bobby yanks a ball out of her hand during an early evening game, she escapes under her covers where her beloved Aunt Ruby finds her. This wise woman comes up with the perfect way to chase the girl's blues away by making a list of her favorite things. Aunt Ruby coaxes `Manda from her mood by telling her a few of her own favorite things-the cream-colored tom cat, brightly colored mixed fruit, sweet songs on the saxophone... And before long, the child has quite a long list herself. This heartfelt story has a warm and cozy feeling to it and fully succeeds in bringing home the message about appreciating day-to-day things. Ransome's glowing illustrations of this loving African American family and their surroundings are beautifully done and add depth to the story.Kathy Mitchell, Gadsden Co. Public Library, Quincy, FL
