Beyond my expectations!!
A wonderful collection of nursery rhymes, and the artwork is over the moon! I chose this book as a gift for my granddaughter, who is expecting a baby sibling soon. A book she can share. A thousand thanks!
Shipping was fast and secure. I'm already eyeing the baby's first book.

The book is beautiful, not what I was expecting, but very nice! I thought the pictures had the embroidered items incorporated in the book. They are photos of the items. But very beautiful.
