  • Egnéus's mixed media pictures situate wide-eyed Tisha with her endearing trio of top-knots in an urban setting rich in sensory stimulation but also humming with distractions and demands - exactly the place where "Hurry up" puts colorful drifting flower petals and time with your own thoughts just out of reach. Meddour's message will land squarely on adult readers and child audience: Chill out! - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
  • Egnéus's illustrations are lush, and include a variety of perspectives and points of view, including a delicious scene of Tisha nose-to-nose with a ladybug. Combine that with eye-popping spreads festooned with blossoming trees that evoke all the meandering wonder and play this little protagonist desires, and his work here is downright honor worthy...In a world full of hurry up, this title encourages children and their adults to slow down and catch the blossoms. Recommended for public and school libraries. - Jennifer Noonan, School Library Journal
