  • Purchased as a gift

    The copy my grandson had became damaged so I purchased a replacement. My daughter says he loves the book. I haven't read it so I can't comment on the story, hence the rating I've given.

    This is a beautiful book for little ones. It has a sense of calm and charming illustrations. My granddaughter loves it.

  • The perfect book for new additions

    by on

    I received this book when my child was born, and have now bought it for a few friends when their children have arrived. It tells a beautiful story of the hopes we have for our child, for a life filled with appreciation of, and adventures in, all the simple wonders in the world.
    It is illustrated beautifully, and with a couple of specifically Australian illustrations, makes a beautiful gift for someone living overseas also.
