Sometimes our feelings are so big, our dreams and our worries so wide, that we can't find the words to express them. 

How MUCH love we feel; what a new sibling will bring; exactly what it's like to take a hard tumble, or to want the sun to shine on a rainy day. 

These thoughts and questions are explored by Hans and Monique Hagen in poems pitched perfectly to the children who wonder. 

Marit Törnqvist is their brilliant partner, spreading gorgeous color and heartfelt imagery across these pages. If you want a sneak peek at what we mean, turn to the sunflower spread on page thirty, and feel…yourself smile.
