From the Back Cover
As children grow, the blankets and pacifiers, ball games and dandelion bouquets fade into distant, tender memories. Most of us remember and faithfully capture our children's "firsts." Karen encourages readers to try to recognize and savor the bittersweet "lasts"--those milestones that often go unrecorded.
The illustrations by Mary Collier provide a lighthearted portrayal of everyday family life and bring a sense of authenticity and fun that you and your children can enjoy together. "Let Me Hold You Longer" is a heartwarming reminder of the precious process of growing up and the joys of watching it happen.
