Book Review: If I Could Keep You Little

I had an opportunity to review a book written and illustrated by Marieanne Richmond called If I Could Keep You Little. This book is a great book about the milestones children reach as they grow up and what most of us mommies what them to stay little. The illustrations are beautiful.

From the Publisher, About the Author: Marieanne Richmond started as her own greeting card company (Marieanne Richmond Studios, Inc.) and has become a recognized creator of numerous books that celebrate milestones in life, memorable journeys, and relationships. Since her first book in 1997, Gift of An Angel, writer and artist Marieanne Richmond has touched the lives of millions over the past decade through her line of greeting cards and gift books.

Review: I came home to a sick little girl one night after this book arrived in the mail. She had a pretty bad cough and was up at 11pm when I got in. We decided to cuddle on the couch for abit before heading back to bed. I pulled out this book and began to read it to my little girl. Abby sat so still and was right into this book. The following day she asked me to read it to her again. This is such a great book. All the pages are so true, "If I could keep you little, I'd keep you close to me.  But then I'd miss you growing, into who you're meant to be!" This book is all about keeping your child little but then realizing you would miss out on all the wonderful milestones on the way of them growing up and becoming an adult. The illustrations are cute and fun and the words are simple and easy to read. This is a great book for young readers to start with. All around I really do recommend this book, for young and old. You will absolutely love reading this book to your children.

Where to Buy: You can purchase If I Could Keep You Little at Chapters for $14.43 or at Amazon for $18.99
