This was our Mock Caldecott winner! Stunning and realistic illustrations that make a great use of space to illustrate the concepts of "more, less and too much'!

This simple book only has a word or two on each page...but tells a great story about a bird who picks up too many pretty things and collapses his own nest. Great illustrations!

Less is More. Spare language on large illustrated pages covered with "stuff" brings home the message. Great for toddlers!

An entertaining, non-preachy picture book for preschoolers about the dangers of over-consumption.
