A Sky Full of Kindness - Rob Ryan

Title: A Sky Full of Kindness
Author: Rob Ryan

This is the kind of book that is written for the sole purpose of relaying a message in a beautiful way. There isn't really a plot as such, just, like a fairytale, there is a moral to the story. This book is about a female bird who takes a journey around the world and learns about what it means to be a parent. The way it is written is poetic and the beauty of the words is enhanced by the illustrations. 
Rob Ryan's illustrations are simple; being only two colours; and yet they are unbelievably detailed when you think about how they are created. Due to the formatting of the book, this is a very quick read but I found some of the handcut letters quite difficult to read.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars but I think that it would be suitable for all age groups and is definitely one that you could read multiple times.
