This is a really lovely book to introduce children to the history and art of handmade books. Not only is the story fun and engaging, but the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous - perfectly in tune with the subject matter. Highly recommended!
I read a huge amount of children's literature with my daughter so that is mostly what you'll see from me here. Finding high quality books to share and enjoy with her has become my obsession. But, I also love classic literature, travel, historical fiction, poetry and art. Mostly, I just love books and words. Deeply.
