I absolutely adore this book. It is beautifully written and the illustrations are gorgeous. Today is my oldest child's 8th birthday... when I read this book to my kids I was thinking about Aiden as a baby and had to choke back some tears. One line in the book says " and the world will never be the same." It is just so true- a baby changes everything!
I love that this book talks about babies all over the world with names and families and descriptions of where they live. It is a wonderful way of teaching our children about the rest of the world and how similar we all really are. It is also a good reminder that no matter what is happening at home or in the rest of the world mommies and families everywhere love their babies the same.
I am happy to recommend this beautiful book.
