Author: Karen Kingsbury and
Illustrations: Valeria Docampo
I have read Karen Kingsbury books for years and when I saw this book as a choice, I had to read it. I love picture books and when this book arrived, I saw immediately that the pictures were bright and large to catch the eye. Then I set down to read it and was drawn to the story of the mom and her son. Being the mom to three boys I could easily relate to the story. It was a sweet story of a mother and son’s love and the circle of life. As a mom and grandmother, I could easily relate to the story and it was precious. Karen Kingsbury once again did not disappoint. She is a master story teller and always tells a wonderful story. Although I do not recommend this book for a toddler, my granddaughter did let me read it to her. The pictures are perfect for her, but the storyline is for an older child. This book is perfect for gift giving and special occasions, and can serve as a treasured keepsake as well as a compelling reminder of the influence a loving mother can have in the life of her son.
