"Rosenthal again demonstrates her ability to use wordplay to create stories with real emotional depth as she follows children through a day, described only in three-word, A-B-C phrases... Illustrator Lam's debut couldn't be more polished and confident: her palette seems to shift with the day's waxing and waning light, while her crisp, screenprintlike images have an understated poise and precision that highlights the quiet magic of everyday moments."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Toronto illustrator Gracia Lam lends her artistic talent to American author Amy Krouse Rosenthal's gorgeous and whimsical picture book, which uses the first three letters of the alphabet as the jumping-off point for a series of three-word phrases describing everyday events. A birthday party scene features Lam's stylized, retro-tinged illustrations rendered in ombre pinks and purples and Rosenthal's quirky wordplay: 'Another Bright Candle, ' 'Atop Birthday Cake, ' 'Amazing Balloon Creation.' Awake Beautiful Child is a visual treat, and a fun twist on the alphabet book."

"Beginning with a morning stretch and ending with a flick of the bedroom light switch, readers follow various children in their daily routines. The entire text is composed of three-word phrases that begin with the consecutive letters A, B, and C. Some are simple lists: "Apples, Bananas, Cantaloupes" at the breakfast table, or "Ants, Butterflies, Caterpillars" during a walk. But others are beautiful reminders ("Always Be Curious") or silly words of wisdom ("Avoid Blinking--Cheese!" during a photograph)."
