From Publishers Weekly
Journalist and life coach Siblin-Librach (The Toronto Wedding Handbook) presents this guidebook, suitable for anyone with a new baby in their life (but especially mom), to crafting heartfelt love letters to infants designed to preserve and give back "a piece of their memory they otherwise wouldn't have access to." With patience, much encouragement and numerous examples from her own letter collection, Siblin-Librach leads non-writers through the letter-writing process, providing "Magic Keys" to use as jumping-off points, suggestions for topics common to the child-rearing experience (shopping for maternity clothes, baby's first bath, the bedtime routine) and tips on technique (starting small, using humor, making regular appointments to write). Though reading it straight through may prove terminally repetitive, this slim volume makes a fine resource for parents looking to make a very personal record of their child's early years.
