Along Came You by Karona Drummond and Estelle Corke

May 2nd, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: What happens when the pleasures of a tidy, carefully decorated home are traded for the excitement of high chairs and noisy toys? When quiet evenings and carefully planned schedules are traded for busy days and crazy nights? What happens when the desire to experience joy is replaced with the desire that another would experience joy? Karona Drummond weaves images of life before kids with life after kids. Illustrations by Estelle Corke, “Along Came You” is a sweet reminder of the sacrifice parents make for their children and teaches children about the joyful changes they bring, transforming a simple life into an abundant life.

I am always looking for new children’s books as my daughter loves being read to.  She is almost 2 years old so if a book holds her attention before bed time that is always a good sign.  She actually sat through this entire book and liked pointing at the butterflies and brown bears through out the book.  I enjoyed the story and thought every page was so true.  A cute story and wonderful illustrations for mommy and their daughters.
