it was amazing
bookshelves: childrens, favorites, picture-books

This is one of only three board books that continuously survive the purge because I simply can't bear to move it out. I see tiny, invisible handprints all over it, as it was a favorite of both of my children. I received this as a baby shower gift and have easily read it hundreds of times. That it is still occasionally requested at bedtime makes my heart happy. Beautifully illustrated, this story is so sweet that I have never been able to read the ending without a lump in my throat and a hitch in my voice. How much do I love this book? To the moon. More importantly, how much do my children love this book? To the moon and back. 5 stars.

Update 2018: This once again has survived the year end, post-holiday purge. I tossed my beloved camouflage print Vans, my 1992 Cure concert T-shirt and several little monuments to my past that no longer serve me, but I simply cannot release this 11 year old, tattered board book. So on my shelf in the living room it remains, where it continues to make my heart happy.

Liz Such a beautiful book! I don't have children but this is the book that I bought for nearly all my friends at the birth of their first ones, and for my nieces and nephews. <3
