I love books!! I have always been an avid reader, and I knew I would always read to my child once we had one. I can never resist buying Abigail new books. I found this new one at Barnes and Noble the other day, and it is officially my new favorite book to read to Abigail. It’s called, “I Wish you More” by Amy Rosenthal. Here’s the link for it on Amazon if you are interested.
It’s a little poem so beautifully written about what you wish for your child. Here’s a couple of pages from the book itself to show you.
The pictures are my favorite part. But the last page reads, “I wish all of this for you, because you are everything I could wish for…and more.” Makes me cry every time!
The front cover says, “Some books are about a single wish. Some books are about three wishes. This book is about endless good wishes. What will you wish for?” So I wrote a little poem of what I personally wish for Abigail. It’s not all cutesy like the book is, but it’s still my heart to my child. But if you need a new book to read, or a present for Easter then check this one out!!
