Quite simply everyone young and old should have a copy of this book.
Having just read it for the first time it really has taken my breath away, just incredible illustrations and poignant words.
I cannot wait to get reading this with my daughters (aged 1 & 4), I think they will love it and I just know how much pleasure we’ll get from snuggling up at bedtime reading this book and talking about it together as they grow. I look forward to reading it with them as they get older too, seeing them understand different aspects of it a little more.
I can’t see this book spending long on our bookshelf at all.
I would highly recommend this book as a gift for any aged child or adult. I am planning on buying another copy as a new baby gift and writing a little message inside.
