My #highlightoftheday for you (I just decided I'm going to make this a recurring hashtag)
I love everything that Oliver Jeffers creates. Art like this makes me happy to work in the children's section. This isn't just a picture book, it is so much more. A love letter to books, stories and the neverending world of imagination ❤️ *crying*

We loved Oliver Jeffers and when my kids were young I tried to find his books to read to them. This is a tale about the joy and rewards for reading and sharing stories. A lovely read for young and young-at-heart.

5⭐️ Why doesn't Oliver Jeffers have more awards. Seriously. The guy writes picture books that make you want to rip your heart out and share it with everyone around. This time, a little girl is telling the reader what it is like to live in a world of stories. To be full of imagination, to dare, to dream, to be anyone you want. Add amazing illustrations, and this book should have a Caldecott medal on the front. Alas, it doesn‘t, but read it anyway.

Graciouswarriorprincess I loved this book! 5y
Lindy I am totally with you in regards to Oliver Jeffers. All the stars. All the awards. 👍 5y
LibrarianRyan @Lindy everyone I read just gets better and better. 5y

I got this book from the library today for my little dudes, and now I NEED to own a copy. I don't know that they quite cared for it on a first read, but I fell in love. All the feels. A love letter to books, imagination, and bookish childhoods.

I don't know that the photo does it justice, but the mountain they are climbing is made from the text of Peter Pan 😍😍😍

Caroline2 I've read some of his other books! My eldest loves Stuck and my youngest loves lost and found! Defo going to be checking this book out now too! (edited) 5y
TheKidUpstairs @Caroline2 he has some great stuff. Have you read Stuck with your kids? Dude the elder LOVES it, he thinks it's the funniest. 5y

I have three shelves in my bedroom and a couple downstairs as well so there's no way to get all of them in one shot. (I live with other bookworms so we keep buying more shelves -- and more books! It's a vicious cycle.) Some of the shelves are organized by color or genre but this one is just random.

This shelf has my record collection below it and my art print collection on the walls above.

It is my first day back in school after the holidays today, so I am pretty tired. Therefore I went for something light as my first read of 2017. Sweet illustrations with quotes from classic children's books and a simple story about the wonders of books. A great way to start a new reading year. And also my first read in both the #LitsyAtoZ and #readharder challenges 👌

A very beautiful and whimsical picture book about the importance of books and imagination. Sam Winston's art was a great mixture of ink, word, and photography. I especially loved the page where the trees were made from books! I thought this was quite different from Oliver Jeffers normal books, which usually contain a good amount of humor.

A charming and imaginative picture for book for kids who are a little older. A girl rides a sea of stories to help a boy stuck in a box of facts. Featuring wonderful text-based and combo drawing and photo illustrations, it's really wonderful. I'm. Using myself a copy!

The story and illustrations combine to create a beautiful book for children and adults alike. Lines from literary classics including Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Peter Pan are used to create images that spur the imagination.

A perfect picture book for anyone (of any age) who loves the classic stories and of course books in general. Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston incorporate quotes from the classics into the book's illustrations to emphasize the precious nature of stories and the imagination.

Under the dedication is this quote: "The universe is made of stories, not of atoms." Muriel Rukeyser.

From what I read on Litsy, we each could be called "A child of books." This is the library copy but I just love this book. I think I need one that is mine, mine, mine. ?
