A Piece of Heaven...
Patrick McDonnnell's follow-up to his picture book The Gift of Nothing (which you should absolutely read if you haven't already...) is-- if possible--even more precious. Mooch and Earl are back for another story about the simple gifts that we overlook very day. Deftly avoiding schlocky verbiage, McDonnell allows the young reader to see more than Mooch so he/she gets the pleasure of "discovering" what heaven actually means. Last Christmas, I gave about 8 copies of McDonnell's last book; this year I feel that I will be purchasing even more copies of Just like Heaven--for children and adults alike! Do yourself a small spiritual favor and take a moment to read this little book. -Rhiannon
