Feed Me Books - Along Came You

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.

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.

What I Can Tell You:  This is a truly beautiful book and I couldn't wait to read it to my children.  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.  Karona captures beautifully the amazing beauty of having a child in your life and how enriched your life becomes with that child.  Even in the simplest ways such as  "before you, I ate my oatmeal alone. After you, there are always guests for breakfast."

I love that the book is big enough to fit on my and my child's lap. The pictures are fun, colorful and take up the whole page.
