Book Review

It gave me ideas for good things to draw and what to do on days when I am bored

This book is really good! I liked it because I like the words, they are different sizes and shapes and colours. There are so many colours and skin colours in the world and in the book and so many birds and clouds and people and loads of love hearts!!
