If a parent could vocalize all her deepest hopes for her child, this is what she might say…
Every parent has hopes and dreams for their children– that they will play and explore, learn and grow. That they will experience life’s many wonders and persevere through its many challenges. That they will one day leave the protection of home and go off into the world–strong, happy, knowing that they are always loved.
Maryann Cusimano Love, author of the modern classic You Are My I Love You, has written another moving ode to parenthood, captured in playful, loving images by the brilliant Maria van Lieshout. This timeless book is perfect for bedtime or anytime, and will strike a chord with fans of the hit song "I Hope You Dance".
