    • Wonder inspiring book

      I first purchased an edition of this book when I was expecting my first son, 26 years ago. Since then, I have purchased it many times as "expectant parent" gifts. The photography is inspirational and every new parent I have given this to has loved being able to see exactly what their own unborn baby looked like at each stage of development. This purchase was for my own son and daughter-in-law who will be granting me a grandchild in September 08!
