How many things can you make in a day? A tower, a friend, a change? Rhyme, repetition, and a few seemingly straightforward questions engage young readers in a discussion about the many things we make--and the ways we can make a difference in the world. This simple, layered story celebrates creativity through beautiful rhyming verse and vibrant illustrations with a timely message.
"Howe's text has just the right tone and is highly relatable, while Fabbretti's illustrations are comic book bold, funny, and capture myriad emotions. VERDICT A girl who loves inventing finds an unexpected ally in her uncle's bride-to-be. Fun text meets spot-on illustrations with a little learning thrown in--it's a winning combo. --School Library Journal
