AND NOW...THE FIRST PAGES (Click on the images to better read them...):
Esmé's Take: I like the little ballerina girl [with feather boa] the best! I think my mom wants to be like the mom in the book.
What Mom Liked:
I think it is a great read for moms everywhere! This is also the kind of book that would make a great gift for a daughter at a milestone of her life: starting school, first date, starting college, getting married, having a baby, etc.
The spiritual focus of Mom’s prayers and whispers is lovely. This is the type of book that reminds me of the kind of mom I want to be, and it gives me prompts of things to pray for my own daughter as she matures.
The illustrations are gorgeous and girl-friendly. These were the main attraction for my daughter.
What Mom Didn't Like:
Not so much a dislike as an observation – as the daughter matured in the book, my own daughter became less and less interested since she could relate less and less. I think the book will be more and more appreciated as she grows older.
