"…humorous and touching…Lucy and Diego are likable representatives of two different cultures, and young readers are certain to relate to them. …The illustrations are full of expression and action, adding to the story’s enjoyment."—School Library Journal

"Along with the message of openness to other cultures, the book’s comical moments make this a reader-friendly choice from the Social Studies Connects series."—Booklist
