This is a very cute picture book with rhyme that you hardly notice (like it should be!) and such a wonderful idea that gives the illustrator a great time illustrating this interesting book.

As PiBoldMo comes to an end, I would like to say a huge thank you to Tara for all her hard work and inspirational blog posts. This has been fantastic, and I have collected lots of fun ideas to work on over the next year. I especially can’t wait to work on the international ones. Picture Books rock!
