My review:

This blog tour took place two days after I gave birth to my beautiful third son! He and I were still in the hospital. The book was waiting for me when we arrived home. I took great pleasure in reading it to my brand new baby, and did so with tears in my eyes. I was overcome not only by the beautiful illustrations, but also by the poetic way the words flowed...and I'm sure, by the thought of the other children were born to parents all over the world. This book is sure to become a favorite in our home!
