The pictures are delightful as well. I especially loved the one of the young boy holding a flower - root and all- and handing it to his mother. An all too familiar scene that many can appreciate.
A wonderful by for any mother!!
We became grandparents over a year ago and when I read about this book I knew it would be one I had to get for my daughter and grandson. I read it as soon as I got it and had moist eyes all the way through. My daughter loves it also.
The book talks about not firsts in a childs life but lasts. Last time to be picked up and held as a child. Last day to take a bottle, etc. It is poignant.
I will continue to read Karen's books and admire her as a wife, mother and auther.
