this is lovely and poetic with gorgeous illustrations. It really doesn't make much sense as a board book IMO. The poetry is for the parent and the illustrations, done in watercolor and more impressionistic than true to life, are not really what I'd consider board book fare. In a formal picture book as a gift for a new parent, this would be a very nice present and presentation. The reduced format robs the book of it's artistry and the board book book style misrepresents the audience.

Some books just don't work well as board books for babies. This one just doesn't do it for me.
