  • This book would be a wonderful choice for bedtime reading – especially with a variety of ages. The unique format and stunning illustrations make it very compelling. I have not had a chance to view the entire book but what I have seen makes me think it will become a favorite.

  • This book would go perfectly with my library theme for this year, One World, Many Stories. Besides that I just plain love stories about other places.
