The place I love...

All the Places to Love
By Patricia MacLachlan, Illustrations by Mike Wimmer

"...On the day Eli is born, his grandmother holds him up to the window, so that what he hears first is the wind, and what he sees first are all the places to love: the valley, the river falling down over rocks, the hilltop where blueberries grow... "

This is one of my all-time favourite picture books. It is a gentle story of a little boy deeply connected to family, place, and a way of life with time for simple pleasures.

I am an Islander - born and raised here. This is the place I love.

Tell me about the places you love.
