One Line Review: An elegantly written journey to and from a loved ones heart.
This is such a heartwarming, and sweet story. It is clearly meant to be read out loud to your kid, or baby siblings. I love how nothing is really sugar coated in this book. Even though it is made up of short lines and mostly illustrations. It doesn’t fail to discuss more realistic things that you normally wouldn’t find in a children’s book. Like starting out from the womb and making their way out into the world. She even mentions pooping! I’m sure that’ll make them laugh! At first, I was really surprised by the nursing scene. Only because I’ve never seen it in a kids book before but I am completely on board with it.
I can easily see gifting this to early mothers to start as a birthday tradition.
