I recently learned of this author. She has written several sweet, touching books about children, families and growing together. Great resource of gift books for new baby on up. Illustrations are worthy too.

You Are My Heart is a book written by a mom in which she dedicated to her children. The story starts off by the mom telling what she wanted for her children before they were even born.

This is a very sweet book that unfortunately Woods could really care less about. The themes are definitely for a much older toddler (W is 18 mo) who is familiar with school aged activities (there's a scene of a classroom and play in the book). My kid really didn't like this book. Multiple attempts to read it failed badly. It's so cute though, and the message is I'd like to try it again when he's older.

Marianne Richmond is an amazing illustrator and poet, touching a parents heart so deeply one cannot help but cry on the first read of this book. I loved this book so much I sent it to a new mom as a gift and have personally written the author to inform her that I will be buying all her books for my own children's collection. She also makes cards and jewelry.

This is another one of those titles that falls into the "books to get for a baby shower" category. It's sticky sweet and way beyond a preschooler's comprehension. I might try to read it to my teenager though.

Beautifully written!! This was in the Valentines Day section for children. The sentiments of a mother to her child. Loved it!

What a sweet book! This one really tugged at my hormonal heartstrings and almost made me cry.

While I'm not a fan of the accompanying illustrations, the message here is very sweet.

With a poetic narrative that reads like a song, parents from diverse families sing the praises of their beloved children; simple illustrations add a touch of whimsy.
