You Were the First by Patricia MacLachlan and illustrated by Stephanie Graegin
I feel a little silly getting emotional reading a children’s picture book, but this one was just too sweet. The book talks about all the firsts a baby does. “You were the first to cry, the first to crawl, the first to walk.” The kicker:
“You were the first to teach us how to be parents.”
I get emotional writing it!
This would be a wonderful gift to give your eldest child when they are having their first child. I’ll try to remember that in twenty-something years…
