Once again Emily has made a true treasure. My daughter Olive and I have been collecting all of the books Emily has lovingly created over the years, this one is the icing on the cake. Beautiful pictures, thoughtful captions that leave so much room for imagination. Everyone should own this lovely inspiring book. Truly spellbound
This book is so beautiful and stirs and stokes the imagination. My children have been requesting it at bedtime nonstop since it arrived. I love it because I know it gets them thinking and wondering about all the interesting, lovely, strange things inside. A real treasure!
Beautiful book with beautiful artwork! I love the concept on which she created this book - with random scraps from other people’s’ lives and interpreting them into artwork. I purchased this book as an adult but I’m sure one day I will be reading it to my future grandchildren if I’m blessed to get any.
This is a book that offers several enticing options to young readers. First, the illustrations will fire their imagination and may also spark a memory. For example, the one about dahlias the size of dinner plates took me back to the 1970s when my great uncle Leland grew them all along his porch so people driving past his home on their way to Canada could enjoy them. The quotes for each illustration might also serve as writing prompts for those so inclined. The illustrations also stand alone as amazing visual images. Truly this is a book to savor and re-read over time.
