My preschool-aged daughter chose this book for her bedtime read last week and I was reminded how much I love this little book for its gorgeous illustrations of Paris and for the sweet storyline. Set in the City of Lights about a hundred years ago, we follow a girl named Adèle and her little brother Simon as they try to make their way home after school. The siblings stop at many famous Parisian landmarks along the way, weaving a beautiful path through the city. While not a vintage book, it certainly has that feel, and is a darling read for little boys and girls--especially one who dreams of Paris like my kids do.
Also, happy to report that Adèle and Simon is on sale now too...ten bucks for an award-winning hardcover is not too shabby! I should probably stock up on a few for birthday gifts myself...
Have a great weekend!
