A mother reflects on the all the milestones, from walking in a deep wood to holding someone else’s hand, that her child will achieve during life.
A beautifully sweet board book about a mother’s love and hopes and dreams for her little one. The pages are on the thin side for a board book, but since it’s not an interactive one, unless you have a munchkin with very strong inclinations for pulling hard it shouldn’t be problematic. The text and illustrations are both soothing and absolutely sweet.
