My Review: Along Came You
All parents know life changes when you have children; Along Came You by Karona Drummond is an effort to teach that truth to children. It is a charming book featuring a mother and her pre-school daughter. Each two-page spread makes up one picture and each picture is captioned with Before you.... , After you..... An example is a picture of Mom reading the daughter a bedtime story. The caption is "Before you, I read books with a thousand pages. After you, I red your favorite book a thousand times."
The colors are bright, and most of the pictures have daisies in them somewhere; something my four year old noticed. Speaking of my four year old, we read the book tonite and she liked it. Since it is aimed at her age group, I'd say that her opinon is at least as important as mine. I'm not sure she really understands that I had a pre-kid life, but hey, I barely remember that time.
