It is a beautiful book in color, in creation, and in childhood (no matter what age one is!). As I looked upon each double-page I felt a delight in the visual as well as where my mind began to take me.
“There once was a little girl who loved stories. She loved how the words and pictures took her to new and secret places that existed in a world all her own….”
The little girl’s teacher loans her a book. It is a special book to this teacher because her grandmother gave it to her as a gift.
