With simple prose and evocative illustrations, Cynthia Rylant and Brendan Wenzel have created a book that celebrates the wonders and mysteries of life. This book works for young children and adults alike. I've read it a numbers of times and it never fails to put a lump in my throat. A beautiful book that is a worthy addition to any bookshelf. — From Mark B.
