Along the lines of "Oh The Places You'll Go".....but think when a baby is born. There is a reason this is almost the perennial baby shower favorite these days! ( )

Absolutely delight! A precious, sweet book that my little just eats up. It's pastel colors and rhythmic verses makes this an excellent sleepy time option.

Two pages towards the middle have a repetitive feel that I'm not a fan of but that's my one and only complaint. ( )

This book is for primary aged student (young readers). This book has a poetic rhyme as it describes all the wonderful things that each little child could be, and how they can bring to the world around them. It touches on themes of self image and love, as the parent describes the love and hope they have for their child.
This is a young readers book that could possibly be read by a child, or could be used as a read-aloud from parent to child. The illustrations add another dynamic to the story, as it illustrates a variety of babies that are all unique, who grow up to be their own characters.

i feel like you can use this book to show kids that their parents care about them and that they are everything that they do love. would use in early classrooms so the kids can make that connection.
