    The Horn Book Magazine
    "The brief, age-targeted explanations of godwit development convey pertinent information about the growing birds' behaviors.... Posada's creative paper collage illustrations capture the fuzzy down of newborn chicks, the starry nights of flying, and the grassy green springtime of the godwits' homes." The Horn Book Magazine 
    Booklist
    "Markle uses the epic yearly journey of the godwit to capture young imaginations and present an important fable about perseverance, courage, and family....Delicate and ethereal illustrations by Posada bring their voyage to life....An obscure yet fascinating topic is the basis of this stylized nonfiction storybook." —Booklist
