From the Back Cover
The important thing about The Important Book -- is that you let your child tell you what is important about the sun and the moon and the wind and the rain and a bug and a bee and a chair and a table and a pencil and a bear and a rainbow and a cat (if he wants to). For the important thing about The Important Book is that the book goes on long after it is closed.What is most important about many familiar things -- like rain and wind, apples and daisies -- is suggested in rhythmic words and vivid pictures. 'A perfect book . . . the text establishes a word game which tiny children will accept with glee.' -- K.

I found the ending a bit... trite (the important thing about you is that you are you), but I'm not a kid and I think children just enjoy it.
I also found the illustrations weren't what I was expecting - the full color cover left me thinking there would be all full color illustrations. About every other page spread is black and white. Sometimes it contributes to the book, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't bad, it just was not what I expected.
I sound critical - I don't mean to be. I give the book 4 stars because it is good. I just want to share some details that might be interesting.
