This book is absolutely beautiful ! It is not what one eould think a board book is, the jacket is padded, the story is lovely, the measurements are of a average size book. Illustrations are top notch ! This book is a treasure and should be treated as such ! The only issue is, it was packed unprotected and right under the tape, when opening the box,(which had no warning) the back of the book sustained a scratch ☹ , how can I gift this now?
