Unwrapping Some Wonderful Illustrations for You

The Book 

A promise is a promise right?  This tender book sends a wonderful message of incessant love from a mother's heart to her beloved child.  

She reiterates all the times in her little one's life that she makes him promises out of the abundance of love that she has for him. She commits to keeping him safe and caring for him unconditionally... always!  This amazing mom shares that life can be hard and sometimes unfair but she pledges to be there, ever guiding and loving him, all through his life's journey.  

She vows to listen, to be present, to love and her ultimate promise? ...  provide a forever home in her heart for her precious child.  

The illustrations are endearing and kid-friendly.  The message is uplifting and beautiful.  

"When you first came to me
so little and so new
I held you close
and rocked you slow
and made a promise to you
I promise you love
for your lifetime through.
Steady, endless and sure,
this I promise you."

This reassuring message is sure to stay tucked in her child's heart long after he has spread his wings and flown from the shelter of his childhood home.  I love the book and I highly recommend it.
