This book is so wonderful. The words have a simple depth to them that -- the type of book that can mean different things to us at different ages. I read it to my 6 year old and her eyes started to tear. She's kind of a badass and usually not sensitive AT ALL - super tough. But she turned to me and said, "Mommy, it's just so beautiful. Whoever made this book is a nature-lover and a life-lover all in one!" We all LOVED the illustrations (including my 2 year old). My friend is going through a hard time so I gave her our copy (which she loved!), but now I am online buying another for us - haha. It's really one of my favorites and we have a ton of books! (We love this illustrator's book about bugs and the "They All Saw A Cat" - which is also deep in its own way -- but this one is my favorite!).
Not much there, there actually. Our grandson, who loves books, was very "meh" about this one and I can see why. I do see that others love it however. Perhaps you should stop by a bookstore to see what you think of it before buying.
LIFE is one of those books that captures a small corner of your heart and imagination...and then it grows. One of the most beautiful picture books I've ever read. <3
As a gift, I sent this book to my grumpy boyfriend. I had not read the book before, and looking back I am very glad it turned out to be as wonderful as it is. Risky move on my part! lol. Anyways, the book is lovely from start to finish. The illustrations alone are well worth the shelf space, but oh is the message so so sweet. I wont say too much because I really enjoyed the surprise I had reading it for the first time. Its a winner! I work in the ER, and I would love to give this book to every patient I have. I know this is supposed to be a children's book, but I don't care! In life, we all need reminders of some simple truths that our adult brains lose track of.
Our preschool age child pours over each page captivated by the illustrations. The story line is good but it’s a true go to book for the pictures.
After seeing a copy of this in our library I had to order a copy for my personal library. Beautiful illustrations and wonderful message for children and adults alike.
This book makes me cry, it's so beautiful. just beautiful, moving, with stunning illustrations.
I love this book so much!! I highly recommend it. The story is cute and the illustrations are beautiful.
