Book number four in the series 52 Books is another wonderful book from our personal library. It's called Please Bring Balloons and is by the author and illustrator Lindsay Ward -- I mentioned her once before here, and we also have another wonderful book of her's that we enjoy called When Blue Met Egg.
Please Bring Balloons tells the sweetest story about a little girl named Emma and a polar bear from the carousel in the park. It all starts with a simple note that Emma finds tucked under the saddle of the polar bear, and continues into the most fantastic adventure. This is one of the sweetest stories that I have read to Little Boy, and it has such fantastic illustrations. I love Lindsay Ward's use of a variety of papers and mixed media.
