As you can see, the vibrant illustrations, by Jane Dyer, drench the book pages in a dreamlike, color scheme.
This gentle tale tenderly guides readers along the wondrous path of nature. We hear how: A cloud knows how to rain. A kitten knows how to play. An oak tree knows when to sprout new leaves.
The cycles of the natural world know how to march along no matter what we do.
And best of all, a mother knows how to love her child. No one needed to teach her. She just knew.
This book is the perfect bedtime story to soften the time spent before children drift off to sleep. It is also a classic book that parents and grandparents will want to keep handy for a frequent re-read.
