Illustrations and simple, rhyming text reveal a parent’s musings about what a child will become, knowing that the child’s kindness, cleverness, and boldness will shine through no matter what, as will the love they share.
What a darling story. A wonderful tribute to the sweetness of babies, their innocence, and the hope we have for them as they grow. What more could you want for your child. The illustrations are beautiful. This books captures the love your heart holds for a child.
I absolutely love this book. The illustrations are so beautiful and unique, and the message is even better. I love that it shares the message of unconditional love, that the parent will love whoever their child grows up to be. The book also talks about having courage, kindness, boldness, and loving others. Such a sweet book, one of my favorites!!!
