Ming and Poppy’s journey takes them over sidewalk cracks and dancing shadows, past honking horns and crowded crosswalks. They greet old friends and make new ones, while sharing stories, secrets, and the sting of painful words.
And sometimes, a sweet treat, too.
In this companion story to Ming Goes to School, Deirdre Sullivan’s gentle text paired with Maja Löfdahl’s soft, rich water color illustrations explores the special bond between family members as Poppy and Ming slow down and appreciate life’s simple moments.

"Following Ming Goes to School (2016), the little girl is back for another subtle journey through the year's seasons. Their loving relationship is evident in the sketchy line-and-watercolor illustrations . . . Lovely and quiet, this is a book to savor again and again." —Kirkus Reviews
