When I whispered "I love you,"
you knew what I meant.

My Thoughts...

I love children's books with great illustrations that capture kids attention. But its even better when the story teller can hook the kids as well as the pictures.
This is a fun book for the kiddos. I loved it and can't wait to share it with you all.
