Book Review - "Along Came You?

Book Description from the publisher:

Available for the first time as a fun and durable board book, the beautifully illustrated Along Came You is now perfectly suited for little hands and hearts. Ideal for Mother's Day, baby showers, birthdays, or any time a parent wants to express their love, this book's storyline highlights the positive ways in which parents' lives change when they have children. Author Karona Drummond, a certified elementary school teacher, employs storytelling techniques that will appeal to both the child and parent. The simple language and repetitive structure of the phrases make this a perfect read-along book that teachers, librarians, parents, and young readers will enjoy.

My Review:
"Along Came You" by Karona Drummond illustrated by Estelle Corke is one of my new favorite bedtime stories to read to my children.  This book is a sweet story of a mother explaining to her daughter how her life was before she had her and after.  "Along Came You" highlights the joy of having a child and expresses a mother's love toward her child. I love this book as it is well-written and also a sweet, beautiful story, it is a sturdy board book that is perfect for small children to hold onto and look through the pages and it is a must-read for parents and children alike.  I highly recommend this book and will be giving this as shower gifts in the future.
