"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.
A perfect gift for baby showers and for Grandparents Day
