I just got my book today and read it 4 times already. It is really a book for any age child as well as any adult. It is a moving and loving story with vibrant illustrations. This story is about two unlikely friends, Buddy the Leaf and Bea the Bird. Their bond and journey brought tears of joy to my eyes. I would recommend this book to anyone, two thumbs up. It will make you feel good when you finish the book, similar to how you feel when you finish the classic book called “The Giving Tree.”
I really enjoyed this book. It is on my top 5 for children’s books. My twins loved the beautiful story. Thankfully, they have not experienced loss, but you do not need to experience loss to enjoy this story. As for the artwork, very colorful and emotional. The text and art together kept my kids engaged.
