Review: In This Book

Sometimes the simplest concepts can pull the most punch when it comes to children's books.

This gorgeous, richly-illustrated book, with simple shapes and lustrous colour, take children on a journey with various objects, as we find them in their typical place of residence.

I am in the sky, said the cloud.

I am in the hair, said the barette.

I am in space, said the planet.

A wonderful way for little ones to explore our world and to understand that there is a place for things--the beautifully retro imagery will also delight adults, sending them straight back to the 1960s.

One for the shelves of illustration lovers (and kids!).
