If I Could Keep You Little

We’ve all had those moments; looking at our sleeping child and wishing they could stay that tiny, that innocent and that sweet. Then we look at the child 1,2 or 3 years later and think could this kid get any funnier; stay this way forever. As parents we’ve all struggled with the wish of wanting today to last forever and the wondering what the future holds.

If I Could Keep You Little is a book that talks about these challenges and the steps in between.
“If I could keep you little, I’d keep you close to me

But then I’d miss you growing into who you’re meant to be!”

Maybe the words and situations aren’t the same as when your children were growing up but the message is right on point. I remember with each child looking at their tiny newborn faces, wishing time could stand still but it that happened we wouldn’t have the laughs and smiles we have today. I read this book to Shae when I first received it for review. She sat quiet as I read her the story through smiles and tears. I cried because the story is emotional and insightful and reveals a lot about the way many mothers feel each day.

While recovering from brain surgery, author Marianne Richmond created hand-painted cards as individual thank you notes for her well-wishers, and from that small beginning started her own greeting card company, Marianne Richmond Studios, Inc.. Since then she has become a recognized creator of numerous books that celebrate milestones in life, memorable journeys, and relationships. Beginning with her first book in 1997, Gift of An Angel, writer and artist Marianne has touched the lives of millions over the past decade through her line of greeting cards and gift books.

A wonderful addition to any child’s book collection, I recommend purchasing this book.  I’m particularly glad I was offered this book for review, I’ve found so many other titles that would be a wonderful fit for my family and friends.
