This is a marvelous mother and son book. When I found out I was pregnant this was the first book I looked for. I loved reading it to my brother when he was a toddler. It was the first book I read to him. We sat down in the rocking chair when he started to nurse I started to read him this book. As I read the first page I had tears roll down my face. Tears of joy and complete love. The moment was surreal as I looked down at him nestled in to my chest. Ever since that moment I read him that book everyday. Sometimes when he wakes in the middle of the night I rock him back and forth and recite the book to him from memory. This book is a wonderful read for any parent to their child but it really hit home to me as a first time mom of a little boy.
