“Hutton’s books feature simple language and illustrations, and all share the same basic message: playing and being creative (and active) is way, WAY cool….” - Dr. Kirstin H., PhD, Founder of SquintMom.com
“My 10 month old daughter was given the book Yard by her Grammy... We started reading Yard and she was thoroughly engrossed.  She loves the squirrels that skitter and zoom and the praying mantis that is going to school wearing its back pack (that is what we tell her). She actually ended up eating the corner of the book when I wasn’t looking (she loves the book THAT much)! Keep up the good work!” - An unplugged mom in North Carolina
