This loveliest of books is a tribute to the parents who raised us to be lifelong readers and lovers of the story and its world of words. And it paints a poignant picture of the newly-minted soon-to-be voracious readers that we’re now raising in our own homes. We’re also reminded of other wondrous milestones of first words and budding conversations that we get to experience as caregivers. Rachael Cole’s beautiful narrative weaves together with Melissa Crowton’s warm, heartfelt illustrations to create something that’s resonant and timeless. And on a last note, be sure to have a tissue at the ready. I’ll say it again — this one is so lovely.
