I have rarely read a book that moved me as this book did. I first read it to my son in 1978. I had the recording of Tammy Grimes reading it also. I just purchased a copy of the recording and a copy of the book for each of my children as a 'grown up' gift. They were well pleased. You will not regret reading this to your children. It is a most special expression of feelings and thoughts.
