it was amazing

Okay, this book is beautiful. The illustrations are compelling, colorful, creative--made of absolutely stunning collages of fabric and other materials, photographed and set. And the story... I read it to my preschoolers, fighting back tears as I read (both times they asked me to read it!). And then we talked about what it would be like to really build your own school from the ground up. I think it deserves a couple more readings with them to see what we can do about having it grab their imaginations a little more. What a project we could make of it!
