This book is so sweet. The illustrations are sweet. The stories are sweet. Everything about it is sweet and gentle and kind of perfect. I love Philip Stead’s illustrations and the amazing range of emotion his little animals have. I own this book and love reading it with my kids when we’re trying to calm down or just be quiet and soft and snuggly.
