"Sincere and serene, with masterful, atmospheric illustrations." -- Kirkus Reviews
"First published in Japan, this charming picture book includes artwork defined by precise, graceful ink drawings, warmed with colour washes, and suffused with the beauty of woodlands as winter turns to spring. A good starting place for discussions of seasons or the water cycle, this appealing picture book also offers a satisfying excursion for young armchair adventurers." -- Carolyn Phelan ― Booklist
"Iwamura illustrates in subtle earth tones; pale grays gradually turn to soft yellow and a milky green-blue as the stream leads into a tree-lined lake that dwarfs the squirrels’ tiny boat… Graceful artwork captures the visceral experience of seasonal transition." -- Publishers Weekly
