This book is recommended for ages 8-12 but my young kids loved it. The text and message are definitely simple enough and the illustrations are lovely.
It’s a sweet story about finding the perfect gift for your newborn child. It’s nothing you can put in a box or wrap. It’s the dawn’s sweet dew or the muddy pigs. It’s the rainbows and fall’s leaves. It’s all the things you experience in the world with your child as they grow. So perhaps it’s also a tear jerker?
Why I like it
The illustrations are stunning with beautiful prose that definitely speak to every parent (especially the new ones!) who are eager to rediscover all the joys of the world with their children.
Hope you enjoy these picks! And as always,
