What readers are saying


This is a darling little book that little kids and parents alike will treasure, and read again and again!

I voluntarily received and reviewed a complimentary e-copy of this book which I received from the author/publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

Well this book tugs on the heartstrings. If you enjoy the classic "Love You Forever", then you'll enjoy this one too. The thoughts and feelings we feel as parents looking at our wee babies and knowing they are going to grow too fast and just wish they'd slow down. A sweet story to cuddle up with your little one and let them know how much you love them while addressing our ever present fear and dread of them growing up. Would make a cute gift for new parents.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.



Beautiful book of poetic statements of love illustrated with a variety of families. Can’t wait to read to my first grand-niece!



A beautifully illustrated book cherishing every moment of the child's life. A wonderful picture book for the whole family to enjoy. I highly recommend it. Thanks to #netgalley for the early review copy. I just loved it.
