    • Wonderful!

      This book more than met my expectations. It is a heartfelt story that I can't wait to read over and over again to my soon-to-be born grandson. The pictures are lovely, the colors vibrant.

    • Bought Two

      I saw this book in a specialty store for the listed price and decided to wait and look online. I was pleased to find it on Overstock and ordered two for two new granddaughters--one born in May and a second due in November. I'm an educator, so I know the value of building self-esteem in a young child--something that will give them the confidence they need to succeed in life. I can't wait to read these books to my two granddaughters when they are old enough. My only regret is that Overstock did not carry the stuffed polar bear that accompanies the book--will have to purchase off another site. The two together would make a perfect gift for a new baby.

      This is a wonderful bedtime book. It's perfect to give to a child who is having a new baby come into their family soon. It reinforces the excitement that the older child brought to the family when they were born and eases any feelings of jealousy toward the new little one.
