Celebrate the wonder of the world in this reassuring picture book about the joy, love, and beauty found in each and every day.
From the treasure of flowers to the mystery of insects, this lyrical book encourages children to explore the natural world around them and to be grateful for all that surrounds them. With jewel-like artwork, every page is a treasure for children just born or exploring the world full of possibilities we all share.
A note from the shop: We purchased this book for our son and can't get over how completely gorgeous it is. Its text is lyrical and the illustrations stand on their own. Our only gripe is our son doesn't want to read it more often.
