This is a beautiful book with painstaking, lifelike illustrations that pull you into the story from the start - And I love the way the exploration collides here with a celebration of the rapport between a grandmother and her grandson: family, at its best, the ultimate tonic.
–The Observer

Atmospheric illustrations - A very special story about the power of the imagination.
–Parents in Touch

You feel as though you were there. And you could be. Maybe.
–Bookwitch

It is a great pleasure to recommend another title by the same award-winning author. I would hazard a guess that Look Back! will be just as popular with a slightly older readership at KS1 and early KS2.
–The School Librarian

Binch's lavishly detailed art pulls readers into the setting and expertly conveys Christophine's nervous movement. ...a story whose characters feelings are so vividly rendered readers may recall seeing such expressions in real life. Beautiful visuals aside, it will also make a walloping read-aloud, with its West Indian cadences....
A lovely celebration of the grandparent and grandchild relationship. (Picture book. 5-9) –Kirkus Reviews

Beautiful realistic watercolors mirror the plot and let the reader in on the secret. This will make a great read-aloud, and youngsters will love chiming in with the call-and-response, 'eh kwik eh kwak'. –Booklist

Gorgeous, lifelike illustrations of Caribbean rainforests and a Dominican-American family bolster the appeal of this tale...Honoring the grandparent-grandchild relationship and family heritage, this book will be a new favorite for imaginative youth. –Foreword
