Such an amazing book! It makes my 7y/o sons 'eyes water' as he would say, each time we read it. Any book that can reach deep into the emotions of a child is a must have in my opinion.
I can remember reading this book non-stop when I was 3, 4, and 5 years old. So much, in fact, that it finally fell apart from constant opening and closing. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and the story is one that has stayed with me my whole life. I would suggest this book to all children who love to read and all adults who enjoy beautiful picture books such as this one.
