    Is there an illustrated reader (book) which accompanies the CD? We have the vol. 1 reader and it is beautiful.
    If vol. 2 does not have a reader, when will one be available?
    (pretty pretty please?) 😍

    • We’re so glad you like the Volume 1 reader! There’s not currently a reader for Volume 2, but we are thinking about making one, so your comment is useful to hear. Thanks!
