LOVE this book!

My 5 year-old daughter has hundreds of books, but only a select few sit on the "special shelf" in her room, and this is one of them. I bought it for her a couple of years ago, and it has been my favorite ever since. Everything about this book is beautiful.... the illustrations, the story, and the message. I simply cannot read through this book without crying...........the second to the last page does me in every time!! This book is a lovely reminder to enjoy and appreciate the simple things that surround all of us. If you are looking for a special book that your children will love and you will treasure, this is the one.........BUY THIS BOOK! If I had to pick only one of my daughter's books to save forever, this would be it.

A Must-Have book for any adult or child.

This is, without question, the most beautiful book pertaining to childhood that I have ever read. The text conjures up an idealistic view of extended families, something that seems to be lost in today's society. The illustrations are breathtaking; Mike Wimmer has certainly captured the essence of a childhood we all wish we had. I have given this book as gifts to friends and family and without exception have been sincerely thanked for adding such a wonderful book to their library. It will add pleasure to all who own it for years and generations to come.

One of the most beautiful books I have ever read to my sons

I am a father of two boys. I am fully in love with parenting and with my two sons. It took me about 20 times before I could get through the book without crying with joy when Sylvie was born. One of the most touching, endearing, joyous books I have ever read. The artwork only ads to the story and completes this "must have" book. It is my new replacement for "Goodnight Moon".

A breathtaking tribute to simplicity, and the joy of birth!

"All the Places to Love" is a beautiful story of down-to-earth magic and miracles smudged with tiny handprints. It is the kind of book you want to read slowly and quietly, so that you can hear the heart-whispers inside of you recognize the dreams printed on the pages behind each word and each exquisite picture. When I first read the book, I was 19 and babysitting, and I was fascinated with the way the story mirrored my own heart. I now own a copy, a gift from my best friend in anticipation of the births of our first children. The story of young Eli and all the places his growing family loves is a rare amd refreshing view of how glimpses of the face of God really aren't so uncommon or so fragile after all: miracles are born every single day, and play-worn, work-worn, year-worn, love-worn legacies are the best kind.

THIS STORY BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES EVERY TIME I READ IT.

THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GIFT BOOK TO GIVE TO A FAMILY WHEN A SECOND CHILD IS BORN. I AM A BUYER FOR A SPECIALTY TOY STORE WITH A LARGE CHILDRENS BOOK DEPARTMENT. I HAVE INSISTED MY ENTIRE STAFF READ THIS BOOK. EVERY TIME A PERSON COMES TO SHOP FOR A BABY GIFT FOR A FAMILY WHO ALREADY HAS OTHER CHILDREN WE SELL THEM THIS BOOK. EVERY PERSON BUYS IT ONCE THEY READ IT. IT IS SO LOVING AND TOUCHING
