Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Tess is a little girl who lives in a very loving family.  They are bound tightly together by their love.  When she leaves for her first day of school she is worried that the love she feels won't go with her and she will be separated from them.   Luckily she has a very wise teacher who guides and helps her with her feelings of detachment.  She discovers that she can create similar feelings with her teacher and other classmates until her mother once again returns to pick her up.  She realizes that love connects her no matter how far apart she is from her loved ones.  

This book is both informative and inspiring to little ones.  The illustrations are a very strong force in reinforcing the message of the strength and the power of love.  I highly recommend this book.
