Quick Overview:

Along Came You, a delightful board book for kids and parents to read together, paints a picture for children about how life changes in wonderful ways when they are born.

"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. Along Came You combines simple yet insightful text by Karona Drummond with vibrant illustrations by Estelle Corke in this board book that answers the questions: 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 April
Overall Rating
This is a board book so it is perfect for little fingers to page through. The pictures are adorable and I think many mom's will read this story and agree with what the author says. Life is completely different after having kids but it is in fact life much better with kids! I couldn't imagine life without my two children... it would be dull without them! They bring the sunshine to me each and every day.

"Along Came You" is a very simple story as a mom tells her child what life was like before having her and after having her. The author will get any mother to recall similar stories and have you comparing your own personal before and after. What a wonderful gift it is to be a mother.

My two kids enjoyed the story and they are aged 3 and 6. Since it is a board book I was recommend the ages for 2-4.
