Some time ago, I wrote about my thoughts on a review of a teen novel and its portrayal of disability. Well, now I have to take issue with several reviews that expressed similar sentiment about Someday by Alison McGhee, a picture book that follows a mother and daughter throughout the daughter’s life.
Here’s what people said:
- Horn Book Guide: “. . . but kids will have a hard time relating.”
- School Library Journal: ” . . .will appeal more to new mothers and gift-givers than to children.”
- Publisher’s Weekly: “. . . will resonate with both new and seasoned mothers.”
