“EXUBERANT”

Covell's illustrations are exuberant, projecting to readers the raw joy and wonder of exploring the natural world. [ The ] inclusion of brown-skinned children encouraged to run "wild" in green spaces is a hugely welcome one given their historic exclusion from same. This sweetly unruly book is destined for mud-stained and ripped pages, as it is sure to accompany many a child on wild adventures in their own parks, playgrounds, and backyards.  — KIRKUS  Starred Review

“POWERFUL”

“Through powerful art and punchy text, Covell celebrates freedom, the out-of-doors, the joy of movement, and the importance of paying attention to the present moment.”— Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“CELEBRATORY”

“This lushly illustrated ode to outdoor play and nature should inspire even the most reluctant couch potato to get out and ‘run wild.’”— School Library Journal

“ENERGY ABOUNDS”

“Summertime! Freedom! Running through the woods and along the beach with nothing to do but enjoy the day. Author-illustrator Covell imparts an ideal image of a magical, carefree childhood day where just being alive is exciting.” — Booklist
