    “Just right for sharing on Grandma’s lap.” (Publishers Weekly)

    A loving grandmother eagerly awaits the arrival of her grandchild. She dreams of the baby's soft sighs, sweet smells, and tiny toes, and imagines the infant smiling, rolling over, and crawling for the first time.

    Finally, the baby arrives and Grandma is ready with a very special message: Even before you were born, I was your grandma and I loved you.

    With soft but realistic watercolor illustrations and sentimental and lyrical text, I Loved You Before You Were Born perfectly captures a grandmother’s feelings as she anticipates the birth of her grandchild.

      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.

    • Wonderful Book
      Verified Purchase

      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.
