Margot's Pick

"When I saw this book for the first time at the Legion I was very pleased. The book met a need: a gift for an older child. The colors are bold, the illustrations are sparse ( in a positive way) and the stories are retold beautifully. It contains many images of animals which children love. The book can be read aloud to a younger child or read alone by an older child. " - Margot
