I am a self-proclaimed book fiend. Children's literature holds a special place in my heart - I think it is because my mother is an avid book lover herself and taught me from very early on to love classic, well-written children's literature.
Beautiful, enriching illustrations are just a part of the draw of a wonderful children's story, and so most of the books we review here will have gorgeous drawings.
You will not find any lackluster books on this blog. No vulgar Dora, Spongebob or Disney.
We believe in books that beautify the experience of growing up and learning.

The Dog Who Belonged to No One by Amy Hest

The classic story of a sad, perfect stray puppy looking for a home.
The difference about The Dog Who Belonged to No One is the time period - Victorian. Indulging in these illustrations is just about as good as it can get on a dreary Fall day. (On any day, really, this book is not necessarily a Fall book. It just feels that way.)

Lia is a girl whose parents are bakers on the edge of town. The dog with crooked ears finds her and the rest is history.
