This is a board book for children and yes it is beautifully illustrated and of course the story is wonderful it just wasn't a book my son actually enjoyed. Even though the illustrations are beautiful they weren't necessarily geared towards children. It will not be a book that we get a lot of use out and more than likely will not keep in our collection because by the time he appreciates the illustrations he'll have outgrown the board book stage. I am sure there are families out there that truly love and enjoy this book but it just wasn't a fit for our home.
**I did receive this book free of charge from the publisher for my honest review.**
