Book Review- "The Wonder that is You"

About the book:
Every parent dreams of embracing their new child, and when that dream comes true, it's as if all of creation rejoices with them. In the tradition of Nancy Tillman's On The Night You Were Born and Emily Winfield Martin's The Wonderful Things You Will Be comes The Wonder That Is You by critically-acclaimed author Glenys Nellist. This heartwarming picture book beautifully captures the universal love and joy parents feel as they celebrate the arrival of a new child. A perfect gift for baby showers, baptisms, adoptions, birthdays, or any time you want to tell your little one how much they are loved.

My Review:
As a parent I really enjoyed this book.   My kids didn't enjoy it as much as me... maybe because I'm there mom and was being a little bit more dramatic.  First off, I love that a mom wrote this reflecting how she felt  when her baby was born.   The words are very poetic and the illustrations leave you feeling warm and fuzzy!   I love my kids and maybe they will understand it more after they heard me read this story to them.   

This is a hard cover book that grabs your attention immediately. Even while I was writing this review in Royal Tea someone saw the pictures and asked to read it.  So lets call this book, eye candy due to the illustrations.   I do want to give the author credit though, her words are so heartfelt that this story reminds me of having my babies.  

Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for a review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% my own.
