A delightful book for the earliest reader. The story is all about how much you love someone. This is so important to emphasize to children. The words are short and the pictures are beautiful so each page will capture your little ones attention. The illustrations look like water colors with shades of colors in every flower. There is even a glossary at the end asking you if you found all the pictures in the book so you can have a game with your little one. I highly recommend this book for any child!
