I really liked this hardcover book, but like I mentioned above, wish I had know it was a story from the eyes of a grandmother whose son and his wife (not daughter) was expecting.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Unless I did not read it carefully, I would have liked to know that the story was about a grandmother whose SON and his wife were expecting. Unfortunately, I bought this book for my friend whose DAUGHTER was expecting. I will not give her this book, but decided to keep it and hopefully give it to another friend when her son's wife gets pregnant.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice quality
I found this book just prior to the birth of my granddaughter and fell in love with it. I have since purchased for my friends as their gandchildren were born and they all love it as well. My granddaughter moved some distance away and I made a tape of me reading this book to her and purchased a copy for her to "read along". It has been a wonderway for us to stay connected. The illustrations are lovely to look at, although I quibble with their choice of such an elderly woman to be a grandmother. My friends and I believe ourselves to be much younger than the pictured grandmother. The underlying message of the love between a mother and son and mother and grandchild is one that touches us all. It's a wonderful feeling to know you were born into love and did not have to earn it.
