This book was wonderful and I'm so very glad Mim added it to my ever growing collection. The pictures were lovely and the words flowed beautifully throughout the entire story. I think it's a great book to add to a child's collection, or even an adults collection. Can't really lie on this on, I may have cried a little while reading it. Because of many reasons this will a hold a special place on my shelves, one of which is because it was beautifully done.
