    1. I am rereading this for about the seventh timer me this book is about more than parenthood or childhood, it is about grace, about the wonder of the human being to imagine itself. It's about language and thought and the marvel of interior existence. Without being in the least bit religious, it is actually quite spiritual concerned as it is with the wonder of things, beyond the sum total of biology or evolution. It is also a book about books, about the value of literature in the development of ide [...]

    2. Twenty years later and I still think about this book. In fact, in the past two weeks, I've recommended it a few times to friends. I loved this book and am going to read it again (as soon as I can get a digital copy). It really opened up a new style of writing to me and a new way of looking at the world. Truly insightful and original. A great read that will have you turning pages and wishing that it never had an ending.

    3. This book was just lovely. A light read that also made me think about how humans develop habits and feelings and empathy. I missed this (real life) character of Madeleine when the book was over.

    4. Simple to read with interesting facts and new perception towards understanding the young ones' world.
