Life is just...wow! I mean, anything by Cynthia Rylant is bound to be impressive, she has imprinted her excellence as an author of children’s literature on me long ago...but this one, it’s above any beyond. A book worthy to rest on any reader’s shelf.
It’s difficult to summarize as it’s a book of few words, but words that hold such wisdom, power, and grace that I want to buy it for everyone; my friends with new babies, my friends going through a hard time, my friends experiencing grief and sadness, my friends newly married or engaged. It’s subtle but direct, intense but simple. I love everything about it. 💕
