My Mom brought out a book for my son and I to read telling me it was one of my favorites when I was a little girl. I had completely forgotten all about this book, that is until I laid eyes on it. Then it was like I had always remembered it. Every page and cute creature hiding under the flaps was instantly familiar and evoked memories from when I was little.
The pictures and words are enchanting. So many adorable creatures living in their sweet homes just as a child would imagine. The rhyming is anything but forced. It flows so naturally while making the pictures come to life.
I hope in years to come, my kids will see a book long forgotten and be brought back right back to their childhood once they see it again.
