You're never too young for really beautiful art

I love this board book and often give it a shower gift. The illustrations are so charming, soothing and evocative that children remain interested in it long after they've "graduated" to picture books. In a little bit of a twist, each illustration references the next page. Some are quite obvious and with some pages, the child will have to really puzzle it out! There is much delight in this sort of "backwards" reading--how long will it take to find the new picture on the previous page? This book makes a lovely bedtime game for parent and child... -Rhiannon
