In the very first moment, when you came to be,
I looked at you, and you looked at me.
I whispered these words as I held you near,
for all time, for all space, for the world to hear
I will love you."
Capucilli's text is lyrical, touching, and makes for a great read-aloud, while illustrator Lisa Anchin brings this story to life through magical, detailed landscapes and precious mother/daughter moments.
From Publishers Weekly:
“…Anchin’s warm images and the strong mother-daughter focus make this a fine pick for adoptive parents, single moms, and other familial setups.”
