What did you like about the book?  In this German import, two little elves or gnomes set out to explore a summer day.  They observe apple trees and greet a hen with baby chicks. They pick wildflowers for their home, watch a mouse building a nest and return home again. The watercolor illustrations are sweet and add detail to the simple story.
