"Concept books need clarity and simplicity; this book about the idea of 'between' has both. The print is large and spare, and the realistic illustrations are done in clean, flat poster colors. Various examples of 'between' are shown along with important things in the boy's life: his cat, dog, house, kitchen, and family: "My mom is here, my dad is there, and I sit in between!' A small glimpse into the happy, secure life of a young boy."
- The Horn Book

" The text has an appealing rhythm: 'The grass is here, the sky is there. The clouds are in between.' The phrases are repeated using the same textural framework throughout the book. The art, cutouts in basic shapes and colors, is often embellished with multi-color splashes and texture, creating a warm, comfortable environment."
