Look up this impressive work by this foundation!

I originally bought this as a book for my collection of children's books as I loved the wording and the illustrations.

Last night, I tried reading her a peek-a-boo book that she seemed to like.

This is a beautiful book (message and illustrations) and is a part of the PJ library funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Look up this impressive work by this foundation! I was mesmerized by this book and felt it was beautifully illustrated; a previous review spoke of the "forced rhyming" which I never noticed. I simply noticed the lovely message of the book. In my opinion, it is a "must have" book, which speaks to the wonderment of a new mother and her new baby.

Format: Paperback
Reviewed by: Wayne Walker

Can you imagine how a mother feels when she holds her baby for the first time after he or she is born? Author Mirik Snir, a mother of nine and a grandmother of thirteen who lives in Israel, shares this lyrical lullaby that captures the bond between parents and children at the moment of birth. "On the day you were born, / Mountains bowed down, / Rivers ran `round. . . ."

Translated from the Hebrew by Mary Jane Shubow, When I First Held You is beautifully illustrated by the author's daughter, Eleyor Snir, a mother of three herself who studied graphic design at the Vital College in Israel and has illustrated five children's books. At the end of the book, there is a page on which to put the child's photo and record the day the child was born. Whether they live in Israel or the United States and whether they are Jewish or not, all mothers, fathers, and their young children everywhere will enjoy remembering the emotions of the day of the child's birth.

I originally bought this as a book for my collection of children's books as I loved the wording and the illustrations. I gave that copy as a gift to my daughter's friend who had just had her first baby. I have since purchased it a number of times as a gift and I also have my copy again.
