Since the first time Summer set eyes on this book, she's been in love. If you've got a little one in your life, you need this book. It even comes with a free poster of the painting that started the book!
The Valley of Rhyme is a tribute to the wonder and intricacies of a child’s imagination. Both figuratively and literally a ‘work of art,’ The Valley of Rhyme is an heirloom-quality book that is sure to engage any child in amazement and excitement. Originally illustrated in watercolor, the piece is unrivaled artistry and could easily be placed in a frame. Nevertheless, we encourage the book to be used and used well. Opened every night, while tucking the little ones away, we hope the corners will be turned and the cover worn. We hope that rather than admiring, the readers will immerse themselves in the creative and whimsical place we call the Valley of Rhyme.
