A little boy delights in his mother’s beauty, comparing her jewelry to awesome sights like twinkling stars and dewdrops that catch the sun. That he invests so much meaning in his mother’s baubles only underscores the beauty that he’s most in awe of: his mother’s ceaseless, generous, and careful love for him. Footnotes define cultural terms, and the illustrations’ electric hues brighten the boy’s whimsical meditations, in this warm tale about the worlds within a family’s love.
