The best things in life are immeasurable...: All My Treasures by Jo Witek

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're shining the book spotlight on a title that's set to release THIS TUESDAY via Abrams Appleseed.  It's a unique and beautiful adventure aimed at the kiddos but wonderful for one and all.  At first glance, it may not appear to be that extraordinary, and I know when some here about the lift-the-flap feature, their eyes are gonna roll, but trust me when I say, it's not to be missed.  Ladies and gents, boys and girls, grab your nearest and dearest and join me for today's book of choice...

This is the story of one little girl discovering that the best things in life are immeasurable.  They can't be contained in a box, no matter how beautiful or heartfelt same said box was gifted, nor can they be weighed like so many grains of sand.  The most wonderful aspects of our lives are counted in smiles and tears, sunshine and rain, family and love.  These are the true treasures of our world and while it takes some longer than others to learn this lesson, a beautiful reminder (such as this book) never hurt anyone.

The story is easy to follow with the sentiments conveyed beautifully.  Readers from the tall to the small will be able to appreciate the unique appeal this book has.  I adored the simple illustrations of our leading lady as she contemplated just what to put in grandmother's box.  As she thinks and imagines, we are treated to those ideas that pop into her mind through unique lift-the-flap opportunities throughout the read.  Almost every page has places to peek and peer, glimpse and admire, whatever joys the little girl has discovered for her box.  You have to be careful or you may miss one because while some are big, others are quite small, but don't let the size of the flap fool you; it has no bearing on how much joy, whatever or whomever is hiding behind it, brings to her heart.
