Wonderful Books ~ a review
It is strange to say, but this is the best wordless book I have ever read. It is a beautifully done rendition of the making of a small community. The first page is of a baby girl being held by her mother and father in a dead grass covered back yard. The last picture is them in a lush and beautiful backyard (the same one) of the same girl with a baby of her own. The pictures in between tell a beautiful tale of hope, friendship, and community.
This book is wonderful! I had it out from the library so many times that I would get it back after having it for the limit, just to find a page marker I had left in it from the last time... so I bought it. lol! I figured it saved me a bit in late fees. She has so many great ideas and artistic pictures in here of a real home, being really used and creatively loved. Many of her ideas I already knew, but seeing them applied so well, esp along with her wonderful narrative, made an inspiring and beautiful book filled with great ideas that are easy to see in your own home.
