PRAISE

Kirkus Reviews

“A toddler lives through a day full of opposing directives with their stay-at-home dad. . . The parts of this day will be familiar to parents and children alike. . . A fresh take on opposites and routines for the very young.”
 

The New York Times
“Opposites loom large for babies, and Gee brings the concept to adorable life. Her action-packed visual vignettes refreshingly feature a brown-skinned baby and caretaker dad who dramatize the obvious (‘no’ and ‘yes’) and the more subtle (‘yay’ and ‘uh oh’). Her touch is feather-light, with many telling details to spot.”

Kirkus STARRED REVIEW

It’s a new day, and little brown Bear is very glad because he has new leggings, dance slippers, and a tutu…

…his nonstereotypical gender presentation is celebrated and affirmed. A star sticker from the teacher for his participation leaves Bear “very glad” he joined the class…

Kirkus *STARRED REVIEW

Good, good book! (Picture book. 2-5)” 

 

Parents Magazine

“After a tantrum…a little one figures out what went wrong and how he can feel better. It’s a sweet book that helps kids understand a range of emotions.”

 

Booklist

Gee’s relatable, insightful, and supportive story effectively portrays not only the intensity of some bad (and mad) moods, but also, reassuringly, that they’ll pass.

PRAISE

Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

“An original take on the first-day-of-school theme follows the 20 students thatmake up the titular kindergarten class as they get ready in the morning. Ashburn and Gee do their best to be inclusive in every way—from the kids' skintones, ethnicities, and hairstyles to their personalities and behaviors…Gee's delightful tots are done in pencil and colored digitally, with a watercolor look. She captures each personality, and readers are sure to find at least one kid with whom they can identify. A reassuring peek that will assuage children's fears about their own first days and their classmates.”

 

Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

Gee (Today with Meg and Ted) turns in some excellent work, strongly evoking personalities for each of the children through body language, eccentric clothing choices, and a bevy of homey details that will resonate with a broad range of readers. Indeed, the book’s biggest strength is its subtle recognition of difference: even though these kids are all headed to the same place, their individual family situations, moods, and interests all play roles in bringing them there.

ABOUT TODAY WITH MEG AND TED

Toddlers Meg and Ted discover so much in a day! “Today is a good day to stand on one foot . . . Today is a good day to look at a foot. Today is a good day to eat our favorite food . . . and today is a good day to try something new.” In the course of a day, young children encounter a wide range of experiences and emotions. This book captures the sense of wonder felt by all children as they explore the world with their zen-like focus. The book’s simple text and old-fashioned art style evoke the gentle look and feel of antique children’s books, but with a fresh twist that is very much of . . . today.
