45 Children's Books You'll Want To Give Again And Again
I was in the bookstore browsing in the children's section when I overheard a nine-or-so-year-old girl say, Hey, Mom, look at this! Of course, I looked, too. She was holding a copy of Before You Were Born and pointing to page 17 picturing a very pregnant woman on a flap and looking aghast at her weight on the scales. Daughter and mother laughed and Mom said, Let's go back to the beginning. I edged closer to take a better look. In this lighthearted explanation of pregnancy all nine months of it author Jennifer Davis describes the stages of development from a mother's perspective.
I just love reading it, the words feel like they are coming out of my heart. The sea is deep. They rock and rock and rock to sleep. Such a sweet story about kindness and teamwork. We can recite it by heart in our house. Given it out many times as gifts to friends and teachers. If he misses her he can place his palm with the kiss on his cheek, and he will know his mother loves him.
