Media Reviews

“In Jacoby’s elegant debut, time is both a riddle and a poem: 'Perhaps it is a ghost / it can come and go / and you never even notice it was there,' she writes. Her soft illustrations, in lovely sunrise, sunset and moonlight colors, capture both wide-open spaces and the enduring bonds of family love.” —The New York Times

"This contemplative, almost meditative, book makes for a good one-on-one lap-time read with the children in your life for whom you like to give your own time." —Kirkus Reviews

"Forever or a Day is a timeless beauty." —Christian Robinson, New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street
