Magnificent illustrations, touching story of true love. I never tire of paging through this book and all the others by Barbara Helen Berger
What a magical little book. The first time I read this book I was really weirded out. I found it hard to get into the theme. But the more times I've read it , the more I fall in love with this enchanting story. Toddler loves to have it fair again and again and again!
This extraordinarily beautiful story teaches children the healing and transforming power of love and compassion. My three-year-old granddaughter was enchanted by it; she wanted it read over and over. Although I got it from the public library, I plan to purchase my own copy.
