About the Book

Gently encourage mindfulness and critical thinking through this playful and witty exploration of negative space.

Can empty space be useful? Can it lead to new perspectives and new appreciation? Might it even be inspiring? Find out in a winsome book that draws on a child’s everyday experiences to prompt readers to look twice at their surroundings and notice the significance of sights, sounds, and spaces otherwise taken for granted.

Critical Praise

★ "Readers will be enticed to keep revisiting the book.... Masterful page breaks create anticipation to see what is coming in the next spread, the first part of a truncated sentence often begging readers to turn the page to explore its resolution. The simplicity of Nichols’ illustrations are reminiscent of Christian Robinson’s and, with a diverse cast of characters—including both characters of color and disabled characters—evoke joy, communicate movement, life, and complex concepts. Beautifully brilliant in its simplicity." —Kirkus, STARRED review —
