    Wonderful, gentle eBook for young kids--great for Easter ~

    The illustrations in this quiet, beautiful book alone make it worth owning. They're just gorgeous. And the spare text is lyrical, almost like a lullaby. It's a circular story, coming around to itself in the end--very satisfying. My kids love this one.
