6.0 / 7.0

This book is gorgeous. I mean, it’s one-of-a-kind, hang-it-on-your-wall gorgeous. There’s not really a story, but the text is sweet and has a good rhythm and flow, which makes it enjoyable to read aloud (while soaking in the illustrations). It’s a unique book and I’m glad it’s a part of our collection.
