Book Review: If I wrote a book about you

This is hands down the cutest picture book that has come across my desk in recent months. I just adore Denise Holmes’s illustrations and the sentiment just ‘gets’ me and my sensitive little tear ducts!

If I wrote a book about you and how wonderful you are, I would write it everywhere, says a mother to her child. And so she does – with the branches of the trees, the sand at the beach, and even the rays of the sun.

The beautiful book very preciously conveys a mother’s love for her child – I wish I had written it for Molly! Since I bought our copy of If I Wrote a Book About You a week ago we have read it together every night before bed… and our last goodnight cuddle.

This is by far my favourite spread in the book

If I wrote a book about you….. and how wonderful you are, I would write it everywhere

I would write that you are lovable in the freckles on your face…

And in the wrinkles on mine I would write that you are loved.”book-review-mollymoo3

See what I mean?! just precious.


I bought my copy on Book Depository (free shipping to ‘nearly’ everywhere :)
