* "How wonderful: a book with both racial diversity and class diversity that feels authentic. Special and splendid."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "The family handles the stress of dashed expectations in a way that acknowledges disappointment while conveying the buoyancy of resilience and the joy of their bond. And a delightful coda may inspire readers to share the inventive way they salvage their day."Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "The simple yet heartfelt story tugs at the emotions, but it's the paper collage artwork that really packs a punch. Created with acrylic paints, china markers, patterned paper, and print clippings, the bright illustrations are inventively conceived and full of motion-just the right vehicle for bringing this Black mother-daughter duo to vibrant life."―Booklist, starred review

"In this picture book gem from the award-winning Oge Mora, a girl and her mother anticipate Saturdays as their weekly opportunity to go on their own private adventures--big and small."―Shelf Awareness

"This one is as much for parents as it is for kids."―Parents Magazine

"Energetic cut-paper collages depict the pair navigating a colorful, bustling city in this splendidly crafted tale of meeting life's challenges."―Horn Book
