this is ...my favorite children's book

Favorite. I have a problem with the word favorite...I might offend the books I didn't pick. So... this is ....one of my favorite children's books. Written and illustrated by; Gyo Fujikawa. I've recently tried to hunt down some of her books for my childrens' children I have learned that they have gone UP in price. I'd love to have a copy of her Children's Garden of Verses. I'm still looking . Gyo Fujikawa 1908-1998.

My children STUDIED this book. The illustrations are so detailed. So many things to look at and talk about and read about.

There's another page where the children of all nationalities are playing hide and go seek. Delightful.
