it was amazing

The song 'Favorite Things' from the 'Sound of Music' applies to this book. This is one of my favorite things. When I'm having a bad day or am feeling melancholy I open up this book and then I don't feel so bad. I have so many favs but one of my all time favs is the definition for babe or baby.

Babe or Baby, n. A misshapen creature of no particular age, sex, or condition, chiefly remarkable for the violence of the sympathies and antipathies it excites in others, itself without sentiment or emotion.

One of my most prized books. I want every version and edition of this book.
