Booklist Online on January 31, 2013

"...glowing picture book..." and  "The girl’s longing for the essentials that she cannot have will speak to readers about what is behind the news images of war, and what it is like to be a child in the violent streets."

Lit for Kids on January 13, 2013

"A fitting picture books for children as young as 5, who will identify with playing, dreaming, and loving your family and the places you live. We’ll be adding it to our recommended list of books to bring understanding of the Middle East."

Media Macaroni on December 30, 2012

"This book is beautiful and lyrical, and a great way to start conversations with your child about war and the lives of children in other parts of the world without overrsharing the atrocities of war."

ReaderKidz on December 9, 2012

"This gentle hopeful book by Ana A. de Eulate and Sonja Wimmer encourages the reader to stop and remember that some children have lost everything."

Once Upon a Story on October 31

"Each page allows the chance for discussion.[...]It is most certainly [a story] that could be used as a valuable teaching tool."

The Pirate Tree on October 25, 2012

"This gentle book by Ana A. de Eulate and Sonja Wimmer encourages the reader to stop and remember that some children have lost everything."

Medicine and Health in Children's and YA Lit on October 22, 2012

"This book is an example of why books for children are important. Because they speak to the dreams of children, celebrate dreams, and encourage children to hope."

Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast on October 21

"It’s a simple, inspirational, earnest vision of hope..." and "Wimmer’s illustrations, on a primarily brown, Earth-toned palette, play with perspective and delight with strong lines and movement..."

Cracking the Cover on October 5

"Ana A. de Eulate’s prose is poignantly lyrical. Her sophisticated style is warm and welcoming, as are Sonja Winter’s illustrations. Her eye-catching lines and stylized depictions are masterfully rendered. Her use of light — stunning. The Sky of Afghanistan depicts both conflict and the desire for peace at a level young child can understand. It’s a fine addition to any collection."

BookDragon on September 27, 2012

"Beyond de Eulate’s inspiring words, Wimmer’s illustrations – from the smallest details to swirling, sweeping scenes — surely add volumes..."

A Wrung Sponge on September 25, 2012

"Perhaps many young readers have family members in the service who have been deployed in the region (our family does). It is wonderful to be able to show how the children of Afghanistan are just like we are; longing for peace and treasuring joyful play with friends and family. There is great value in that message, and it shines out from this lovely book."

Publishers Weekly on September 17, 2012

"Red poppies, a flower blooming from a tank, and a ragtag collection of toys with joined hands are among the many inspirational images that underscore the book’s message of peace."

Kirkus Reviews on September 15, 2012

"Ardent advocacy for Afghan peace..." and "Powerful images of dancing kites, ascending doves, women in burqas, a child playing with toys made from trash and flowers sprouting from tanks juxtapose the real and the aspirational."
