The die-cuts also vary between heart shapes, flowers, clouds, leaves, and stars. The openings highlight shooting stars, the pitter-patter of rain, the shining moon, and lovely falling leaves.
The writing is soothing, with short sentences and calm words, making this a perfect bed-time book. The illustrations are soft with a watercolor style. The pastel colors are creamy with spongy edges. Through the story, Momma Bear and her cub watch the moon, hide from the rain, splash in the river, climb trees, and jump in fallen leaves.
I’m so impressed with this beautiful book! It perfectly expresses that unique type of love for a child that is dear to you.
