Thank you, breeze, for lifting up my kite wings past treetops tall and proud.
Thank you, trees. Your branches are my playhouse. I?m climbing to the clouds!
Eight very different kids, from eight different continents, all go about their day and experience the same moments of happiness: greeting the sun in the morning, swinging on a swing, flying a kite, being tucked in by Mommy at bedtime. Uplifting and visually rich, this book reminds us that the world isn?t as large as it seems, and that life?s greatest pleasures are the simple ones.
