Little Boy by Alison McGheeLittle boy, you remind me how so much depends on days made of now.
I love the whimsical illustrations in this sweet story about little boys, but the actual story itself isnt my favorite. I like the sentiment behind it and the fun characteristics described that a lot of boys may share. I dont like how specific some of it is though, like the constant repetition of the boy and his cardboard box, because it just doesnt seem like something most kids will relate to (though some will, certainly). I do like that the story shows the light-hearted nature of little boys though, like the way you dont worry, the way you wont hurry.
All in all, a sweet story but not a favorite.
