We just discovered this book while on vacation. My 3 year old son brought the book to me to read from his cousin's book shelf while we were visiting family. Being almost 40, I instantly smiled when I realized it was this classic John Denver song. About half way through singing him the lyrics, I realized my sweet little boy had tears streaming down his face...he was simply over-come with the emotion of the lyrics, illustrations and melody. He would not let me stop, but was sobbing through it. It was an absolutely beautiful moment that I shared with my little boy. At bedtime later that night, he insisted I read this book to him again, and he again broke down into gentle tears as I hugged him close before he cuddled up and fell fast asleep. We leave in 2 days, and I am ordering this book now to make sure it is waiting for us when we get home.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
