About the Book:
What thoughts crossed your mother's mind the first time she saw you? What dreams did your father hold in his heart? Told from the perspective of a baby in utero whose parents are seeing the ultrasound picture for the first time.
A colorful and inspiring way to instill the message that we are each wonderfully made and treasured from the moment of conception. Great pro-life gift for baby showers, new parents, and teaching children!
Fun Fact: In early spring 2013, while putting socks on her newest daughter's feet, Ruth spoke out loud, "Look at those toes, where will they go?" In a moment of sheer inspiration, she grabbed her eldest daughter's Tinkerbell notebook, and between folding laundry and scrambling eggs, wrote the manuscript for this book.
Written in a poetic style, this book is a fun read-aloud showing parents at their first ultrasound dreaming of what their baby will become. One thing is sure; this baby is cherished whether a he or a she; whether a ballerina or an astronaut. The parents are ready to play with this child and care for him or her. That a baby is a gift from God is clear.
I'll be donating this book, which was given to me for review by Catholic World, to my daughter's Catholic school. I hope the kids enjoy it. Grade: B+.
