Deserves the status of "classic"
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2018
This is one of the most charming children's books ever written. I bought one for my 62-year-old self because I need it at home as well as in my children's department at work. It touches on the magic of toys, the natural world, winter, science, childhood, and cooperation, and all in such a delightful and touching way. The illustrations and text work together in harmony, and little bits of humor pop up to keep it from being too sweet. But sweet it indeed is. This book is an absolute treasure and deserves to be considered a classic. Can't recommend it highly enough.
