This book made me smile...

...I love how the man made the kite to make his lady smile.

That is so sweet.

(Click on the butterfly kite photo to get the full effect.)

This book is illustrated by multiple Caldecott award winner, David Wiesner. From reading the best American picture books (AKA Caldecotts) I discovered an illustrator that I really enjoy. Wiesner's art is playful, rich in colors, full of awe and emotion. Reading his books makes me want to create.


  1. Cool kite! When you find one, let's go to a nice park together!

  2. After reading this book, I have an itch to make giant animal kites and fly them in a super blustery spot. Just what I need, another idea. Yikes. I am glad you liked the kite. There are even more amazing kites in the book.

  3. I love the new templates. I did mine in pink stripes, but love yours also.

  4. Your blog template is so you too! The daybook format is from someone elses blog, but I cannot remember who. I changed it up weekly. Click on the link 4:53am & I think you will see the orginal format & who started it.
