Along Came You

Format: Paperback

Availability: Out of stock

Quick Overview:

A delightful book for kids and parents to read together that will paint a picture for children about how life changes when they are born, and gently reminds parents about how the loving sacrifices they sow for their kids only cause them to reap more joy.

Before you, my home was decorated in style. After you, my home is decorated in love. So begins the tender recital of love from parent to child that tells the story of the changes that take place after a little one joins the family. What happens when the pleasures of a tidy, carefully decorated home are traded for the excitement of dressing up and messy art projects? When quiet evenings and precisely planned schedules are exchanged for busy days and crazy nights? What happens when the desire to experience joy yourself is replaced with the desire that another might experience joy?

Review by Penny
Overall Rating
It is a precious pink board book and the illustrations are of a little girl, so I’d say this book is written for tots up to about 5 or 6 years old.
In it, a mother is telling her little girl of the wonderful differences since her little girl came into her life…my favorite being “BEFORE YOU, I SLEPT ALL NIGHT LONG. AFTER YOU, I WAKE TO WATCH YOU SLEEPING.” PRECIOUS!!
I recommend this book for mommies to read to their precious ones.

Notes: “Along Came You” was sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review by Zonderkidz…which is a division of Zondervan Publishing. It is a picture book written by Karona Drummond and illustrated by Estelle Corke. (Posted on 5/8/2014)
