To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a beautiful children's book. It's a bit longer than most picture lead books which is a treat, filling the gap between picture books and more advanced storylines for my 2 yr old. The literature is in a handwritten style which is nice because it goes with the soft and elegant flow of the illustrations and doesn't interrupt the child's visual adventure through them. If you wear glasses have them about so you don't miss out on the sweetness written inside because of the font and its gentle size. Gorgeous addition to the book display.
My daughter who is 7 has had this book for several years (we recently replaced it after a move) and she gets a different understanding as the years go by. She loves the comforting rhyming structure and the text is super sweet and affirming. Very comforting book through the text and tone- like a lullaby. Great for bed time cuddles and bedtime story time!
A beautiful story and the pictures are lovely but I've dropped a star as this is meant to be a childrens book and I've found that the lack of colour has made it uninspiring for my child, he never chooses this one over more brightly illustrated bedtime books.
Our children need to know that they belong in the whole world and can be loved and accepted in many places. Speaking as one who has studied child psychology I felt that rather than helping a child to be curious, strong and explorative this book would lead a child to feel uncertain and possibly needy, although I could see that was not the intention.
This book is utterly beautiful, its perfect for children to know they're in the place that they are meant to be. Brilliant for adopted children, well brilliant for every child to be honest! The illustrations are stunning. This will be a very treasured book
