it was amazing

Recommended for: Children of all ages

I have seen this book in stores and love the dancing polar bears on the cover. Now that I've read the book, it's on my list of gifts to give. It would be perfect as a gift for a new baby, but also for a birthday gift and to someone who's a bit down and needs to be reminded of how special they are, for that's what this book is all about. When I read it I was taken back almost seven months to the night that Sophie was born - a special night and a very special little girl. The rhyming text conveys the love that we feel when a new baby enters our lives. The illustrations are colorful and sweet. As you read the book to a child one of the pages says "The sound of your name is a magical one. Let's say it our loud before we go on." That little couplet helps to make the book as special as the child to whom it's being read.
