What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A stunning companion to the best-selling and beloved The Wonderful Things You Will Be, this picture book celebrates how we say I love you with gifts as heartfelt as a daisy, as magical as a dream, and as comforting as a place to belong. It is a poetic tribute to the simple joys of life and nature, and a reminder that the greatest gift we have is time spent together. The gift of quietand the gift of loud, your hand in my hand out in a crowd. New York Times bestselling author Emily Winfield Martin joyously and thoughtfully shares the different ways of giving and loving. Like a beautifully wrapped gift, life’s every day moments are precious: in both the little things and the big things, we can all find wonder. From a feather, to a hug, to a sunset, this book captures these gifts within its pages to remind readers how much they are loved, and how incredible this world we share is. A meaningful gift for any occasion or holiday, and a stand-out for birthdays, graduations and other milestones, with its loving and inspiring message: But this is a gift, here, just you and me. This Is a Gift for You is perfect for little ones (and those who read to them!) who love The Wonderful Things You Will Be and are looking for more magic, inspiration, and unconditional love from the pen and paintbrush of Emily Winfield Martin.
