“The deadpan text works beautifully with speech balloons that extend characterizations. Fleck's whimsical, bold, bright, acrylic illustrations set the tone perfectly for this lighthearted tale . . . Though clearly a message about the dangers of overscheduling children, the lesson goes down easily; caregivers may even take note.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A gentle and pleasing narrative . . . Dreamy Flo will be a sympathetic figure to many children, and her example will encourage adults and kids to ‘get floppy,’ at least on a lazy Sunday.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
