Good heavens babies

Wonderful illustrations and poetry to match. Definitely worth checking out.


I love the twilight illustrations in this book. The author captures the light qualities and colors of dusk so perfectly and it creates a beautiful backdrop for the sillouettes of the babies (and their rescuer) on their adventures. The text has a wonderful cadence. Truly one of my favorite picture books!
