A personal note: our own children have loved all of the mesmerizing details of the Kinuko Craft-illustrated storybooks, and they are perennial favorites taken down from the shelf for bedtime. Even our older children regularly peruse their lush pages to fully absorb the glorious illustrations and seek out details they may have previously missed. We cannot recommend them enough!
