This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #62: Danelle!
Kids grow up way too quickly. And as much as I can’t wait to see the kind of young ladies my girls will become I some times wish they would stay little forever. It’s a constant struggle which in the end I have no control over. All I can do is make the most of their childhood years and hope they remember a little of what I’ve taught them.
IF I COULD KEEP YOU LITTLE exemplifies Marianne’s real insights into the human spirit and her beautiful illustrations that will touch children and adults and that are sure to be cherished for generations to come. Taking the reader on a journey of memory and expectation, IF I COULD KEEP YOU LITTLE showcases the fleeting little moments that reveal how a child changes and grows.
If I Could Keep You Little is a wonderful book about a mother and her child. It’s written in poem style and can be easily read in a very short period of time which makes it perfect for a bedtime story. The watercolor illustrations enhances the soft and sentimental tone of the story and the various fonts used is a great way to emphasize key words.
On the sentimental side, this book really makes me think about my girls and how fast they’re growing up. All the little things I do for them now will one day be replaced by their independence and individuality. If I Could Keep You Little is a great reminder to make the most of their childhood before it’s gone.
