A sweet, beautiful book designed for ages 3-8 but one that all ages need to hear and be reminded of. The colors and illustrations are of bold yet soft welcoming colors and blend nicely with the unfolding of the story. It is of course a fast read but one you will want to repeat to see what you have missed with the pictures and just to hear to words again. My 11 year old granddaughter and 40ish daughter fully enjoyed the book, want a copy of their own, and think it will make a great Christmas gift as well! You will not want to miss this book!
