Lizzie Derksen said...

When I was little, that book made me want to cry every time.

PS: Dove, in that last post, will you tell me what the name is of the book you are reading? x

'I love you forever'. What a beautiful and tear jerking book. I tried to read it to my nephew and barley held it together. I think i managed the waver in my voice alright as tears rolled down my cheeks. Ok I'm a bit of a softy but wow.

Kerin - Those eyes, I tell ya.


Sandra - She truly is too.

Carrie - I missed snapping any photos of her "birthday shoes" - these ridiculous sparkly gold gladiator sandals with pink flowers... oh the things you can buy children! :)

Lizzie - I know, that book (and The Giving Tree) ALWAYS made me want to cry a bit.

PrairieGirl - For sure, the book is "Rare Amazing Things" (compiled by David Attenborough). It's a blend of essays and illustrations (so many of which are phenomenal).

Creative - Oh my gosh, I totally know what you mean.
