Reviews

"The clearer reproductions of the original art are vibrant and luminous."--H.
"Each word has been carefully chosen and the simplicity of the language is quite deceptive."--SLJ.
"A timeless classic that continues to win over the hearts of children. The simple, rhythmic text and expressive illustrations are just as appealing today as they were when I was a child." 10 Must-Have Books for 2-Year-Olds--Brightly
