Praise for Count to Love (A Bright Brown Baby Board Book):

A Parents Magazine Best Board Books for Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers of 2021

Praise for Bright Brown Baby:

“The Pinkneys, prolific creators of books for children, offer a guide for caregivers to affirm their babies’ senses of self-worth… the combination of encouraging text aimed at adults and simple text aimed at babies extends a hand to new parents wanting to tell their little ones how precious they are… A lovely gift and guide for new parents.” -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Martin Rising: A Requiem for a King by Andrea Davis Pinkney, illustrated by Brian Pinkney:

A Washington Post Best Book of the Year

A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year

A New York Public Library Best Book of the Year

A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year

* "Unique and remarkable." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Each poem trembles under the weight of the story it tells... Martin Rising packs an emotional wallop and, in perfect homage, soars when read aloud." -- Booklist, starred review

Praise for A Poem for Peter by Andrea Davis Pinkney, illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher:

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2016

A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year 2016

A Chicago Public Library Best Book of the Year 2016

A Sydney Taylor Award Honor Book

An ALSC 2017 Notable Children's Books list pick

* "Those who love Peter (and who does not?) will relish the illustrations, particularly that of Keats holding hands with Peter under a snow-dappled tree. More to the point, Pinkney lets readers know what Peter meant and still means as a milestone in inclusive children's literature. 'He brought a world of white / suddenly alive with color.' A loving and forceful reminder that Keats' Peter is our Peter -- always." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Fancher and Steve Johnson's acrylic, collage, and pencil illustrations seamlessly integrate images from Keats' books into their own art, which employs a style complementary to the originals. Equally important they skillfully represent Pinkney's lyrical text, which sometimes requires historical accuracy, magic realism, and nods to future possibilities, all within one spread... This is an important book." -- Booklist, starred review
