The combination of textile collages and acrylic paintings are beautiful in this book. The end pages are well done to and fit right in with the story. The illustrator has done a really good job with light in these illustrations too. I don't think the illustrations highlight some of the key elements of the story though. Hands are very important to the story and there aren't any close ups on hands. So, I love the illustrations but I don't think it is a Caldecott book.
