Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute favourite in our house! This book checks all of the boxes- inspiring storytelling, beautiful illustrations and also a little humor here and there. My son loves finding different characters throughout the pages and is even starting to read a few pages on his own (probably because we read it every other night :)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book w/ tons of teachable content I can can spend a short or long time with my 2.5 year old going through this book pointing at pictures and her learning new words. Good for a Very quick bedtime read (just the animals page! or Sea, etc..) or go through the whole book and point at things for much longer. We notice new details every time. A pleasure to read. The illustrations are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtakingly Beautiful I bought this book for my Kinders around Earth Day and it was such a great conversation piece for the entire month! The amount of little details added into the book was great. As an adult it took me a solid half hour to read this book because I was so immersed in it! This is a definite favourite for me and my kinder friends!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to read and look at I love the message in this book, and I think there's a lot to look at with your baby/toddler/child. Books are so much more than the words they contain for young people, having images that you can find something new each time makes for a great storytime.
