Who says picture books are for kids? Everyone in our house enjoys what I bring from the weekly trips to the library. Our 17 yr old son is enjoying this volume as I write this, and his comments include
...the illustrations have such a nice feeling to them...the author seems to really know what she is talking about... very insightful!... the pope plays piano? I didn't know that!... I like the listing of other birds' behavior around the Vatican...a cheerful read!
Need say anymore?
This post doubles as a Pope St Nicholas V post as I have requested this book to be purchased by our library system. It was a wonderful feeling each time the library purchases our own suggestions. Give it a try!
