This picture book is one of my personal favorites. Through simple, rhythmic text, the author creates a charming description of life. At the same time, the illustrator focuses on one family's day together - following them from a beach, to a restaurant and then a family gathering. The combination of beautiful illustrations and an overall message of peace and unity make this an outstanding book. A great choice for bedtime.
