Amateur Book Review - Along Came You

I truly love reviewing books. I love the opportunity to crack open a book before it hits the masses. Reviewing a children's book is one of my favorite types of book reviews, because I can get my kids involved.

Along Came You by Karona Drummond is a beautiful book, about a mom talking to her daughter. Mom tells her daughter how different life was before her and how blessed she is to be a mom.

If you are a reader of my blog you know that my children are everything. I live and breathe them. We waited a long time to have children. I was 35 when I was pregnant with my first. My son! Having a girl after losing my mom at 12 was one of my biggest dreams. This book says everything I would want to say to both of my beautiful children. My daughter loved the book and has asked me to read it to her at least 15 times this week already.

Along Came You talks about how life was different before you came along but oh, how wonderful you have made it. It is the joy a parent feels when she looks at the world through their children's eyes. Our children can teach us so much about life and about ourselves if we open ourselves up to their world. Karona Drummond does just that. She takes all her life experiences and enriches them as a mother.

In A Nutshell: This is a truly beautiful book and I couldn't wait to read it to my children. The reason I didn't record myself reading the book is because the first time I read it, I cried. I didn't want to get all mushy on my video. Along Came You is a wonderful book for parents to read to their children. Whether you are a mother or a father with a son or a daughter.

You cannot go wrong with this book!
