Praise For You Are Home With Me (Animal Families)

"Instills a sense of well-being in youngsters while encouraging them to explore the natural world."--Kirkus reviews

"Watley’s painting bring the animals to life. His renditions are are both accurate and animated, and he uses backgrounds well to present habitat. But it’s the tundra swan painting that stands out. What could easily have been a flat and featureless landscape is imbued with so many shades of gray and green that it wonderfully conveys the enchantment those boggy wetlands offer to all who look closely."--Anchorage Daily News

"The combination of a sweet story about love and home with education tidbits about animals is seamless and the information is presented in an age-appropriate and simple way."--School Library Journal
