Comments from an Amazon.com customer:
"The illustrations in this book are positively stunning, in contrast to many other children's board books. I can't help but notice how beautifully and expertly they were painted. With each turn of the page, the color palette moodily changes, from vibrant golds to muted blues, all the while being treated to beautiful and elegant words. An absolute joy to look at and read, I highly recommend this book for any child's library. This is already one of one-year-old son's favorite books (and mine too!), and will probably be a cherished item to keep in his memory box."
