Our kids (boy and girl) love this book. They ask for it time and time again. It's sweet and has gorgeous illustrations. None of us ever tire of this book. This is a book that I'd love to give to all kids.

This is a simple story of a mother and daughter sharing a day together. My first graders enjoyed the story and its simple yet playful language.
