This is a sweet and imaginative story about learning to entertain yourself and enjoy nature. A great addition to our picture book collection! I just wish there was a hardback option since paperback picture books are sometimes less noticeable on the shelf. And I would love for this one to be noticed more!

What parent hasn’t heard, “I’m bored!”?
Take a journey with a young girl who is left with her own devices and finds her own fun!
The rhythm of the book and beautiful illustrations make this a fun book I don’t mind reading over, and over, and over!
