Publisher’s Description: A gorgeous keepsake book that shines with emotion and foil on every spread, The World Shines for You is full of illumination and hope–perfect for the youngest readers in your life.

There is a tree in the forest
There are leaves on the wind
There are clouds in the sky
There are snowflakes drifting down

A simple story connects the world, the seasons, change, and everything that shimmers in life with show-stopping foil, embossing, and spot UV on every page. This artistic and heartwarming first book truly says what every parent wants to share with their little ones: The World Shines for You.

WildlyRead Thoughts: Gorgeous illustrations pop with foil pieces that highlight the words of this simple book, perfect for even the youngest reader. The sweetly lyrical text leads the reader from one – a tree – to many – the forest – and beyond, with each turn of the page showing more and more complex scenes through fall, winter, spring, summer, country, city, morning, and night, until we reach the end where the whole world is shining. I immediately wanted to read it again.

Also, don’t miss other amazing projects from Don Clark’s design studio, run with his brother, called Invisible Creature.
