A Chair For Always by Vera B. Williams, a book review

A Chair for Always by Vera B. Williams is a picture book about a chair. I believe this is another children's picture book whose author is also illustrator.

Rosa loves the chair. It's a big deal because it's the first piece of furniture she and her Mom got after a fire. Even when the chair gets old and worn, she doesn't want to change it or improve it because it's perfect to her just the way it is.

The story is good. I especially love that homebirth is mentioned within the context of the story and the importance of the chair. The illustrations are sweet. The characters, when shown in any perspective other than straight on, look a bit strange. Distorted. I like the illustrations, overall. I love the watercolor framing of many of the pages.
