Book Nook

My father recently sent us The Boy in the Garden, by Allen Say.  This is a beautiful book that starts with a Japanese folk tale and then incorporates that into the story of a little boy who is walking through a garden and falls asleep.  The illustrations are wonderful, and the story is poignant and well-written.  Both children enjoy looking through it, even if we're not reading it at the time.
