Kirkus Reviews The art was made using a technique called collagraphy. The textures produced are deep and immersive yet immediate, drawing the reader into the rich visual world of the book. Mediander This expressive, delicate and intimate series of portraits of mothers and babies creates a chain of images of love that envelopes and nurtures young readers age two and up.
