Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Yaccarino’s global scope, as well as a contemporary campfire scene that brings the book full circle, cements the idea that the stories we share are a profound source of human connection.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Yaccarino gives voice to the many ways that humans have preserved, shared, and recorded their history through words and images…a good introduction to stories, books, and reading.” - Kirkus Reviews

“A simply told but powerful celebration of the importance of story as well as a jumping-off point for more in-depth study of communication through history. An excellent choice for classroom discussions.” - School Library Journal

“[Yaccarino’s] bold, colorful spreads are not only vivacious in nature and supplement his terrific, artful text, they also emphasize how stories have transformed over time...An inspirational tale of the power of language, in all its forms.” - Booklist Online
