Praise for Lavender

“This simple, easily read little story is a gem. Each telling detail . . . is a gentle brush-stroke in this tender, but never sentimental, portrait of a particularly nice family welcoming its newest member.”—Kirkus Reviews, Pointer Review

“A fresh, gentle approach to a standard theme.”—School Library Journal
