Breeze's Review:
I enjoyed reading this book with my 3 year old and with my 1 year old. I found as a parent that I could really enjoy each of the poems I was reading because they accurately describe all the things I have watched each of my children go through as they grow and discover the world. I also appreciated the fact that the book covered a variety of topics that could incorporate everyone who reads it like grandparents, dad's, mom's, and cousins. The poems were written to capture the attention of children and parents alike and; I thought that the author did a very good job with that.

The illustrations were definitely my favorite part, they were very kid friendly but yet they were drawn with so much detail! I feel like this would make a great gift for new parents. 
The only thing I wasn't excited about was the title of the book. The title of a book is the first impression a reader gets and I didn't feel as though the title created the right amount of enthusiasm for the book. Over all, a wonderful book and I'm glad to have shared it with my children.
