This is a delightful story for readers six years old to grandparents, that teaches children the value of spending real "one-on-one" time with those you love. Even though our modern technology may be sparkly and musical, there still is nothing like the time spent with a girl and her dog. This story is rich in its message and the artwork captivates the attention of young readers in a way that many children's books don't today.
At the back of this book is a wonderful index that lets the read know how the drawings were made, with supplies they can find right in their own kitchen, and the author's website offers a download of coloring pages, which make for a fun afternoon blending art and literature with kitchen chemistry. Surely, this will be a book the little ones in your life will come to cherish.
For me, one of the stand-out details about this book is that it was created by two sisters, one wrote the story, the other created the illustrations. I'm always impressed when the creativity of family comes out to support special family time; and this pair succeeds beyond expectations.
Highly Recommended! Five Stars!
