From a bestselling author-illustrator team comes a heartwarming picture book in verse about the deep and lasting bond between a mother and her child. No time is a dreamier time than when a new baby is on the way, and in this gorgeous book a mother tells her little one about all the dreams and promises and love she had for him or her even before they met. Laura Krauss Melmed's gentle verse and Jing Jing Tsong's lush, vibrant illustrations make this a wonderfully fresh look at the love between a mom and her baby.
