ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Nuggets of gentle wisdom are peppered throughout this warm and comforting picturebook. Featuring a diverse array of children engaged in everyday activities, the text encourages the reader to don't forget things ranging from the practical (like wearing socks that fit or to brush your teeth) to the thoughtful (don't forget to share or to lend a hand when you can) to the philosophical (don't forget it's good to be alone sometimes). Enhanced by joyful illustrations in muted and pastel shades, this is a book to give to the youngster in your life - or to your best friend! Lindy
