Mary Whyte's illustrations are a beautiful complement to the story. The pictures fill each two page spread with the soft colors of a summer evening. The mother and sons are strikingly real. I look at Max and Julian and see my own boys, one overflowing with exuberant energy, the other cooler and more reflective.
The book is of very good quality, especially the art work. Whyte's illustrations are full of warm colors and touching images, and the artwork dominates each page to add to the story. The artwork also avoids any taboos such as huge homes, lots of toys laying around or inappropriate images. The story itself is easy enough reading for a child who is past the basic reading level, and the words are printed large enough where a parent and child(ren) can all see the words & pictures together as the story is read. Finally, the length is not taxing on the attention of young children (3 to 5), but the charming story is not cut short either. You will love this book and the lesson it teaches.
I have a friend who is expecting her second baby. She said one day that she could not imagine loving another child the way she loves her first. This book is my baby gift to her.
