This book is a delight to complete and to receive. I love that this is a book about sharing experiences and creativity. There are plenty of opportunities to engage your little one and discuss emotions; mum is celebrated and acknowledged for all the things – for blowing bubbles (such innocent fun), she bakes the best birthday cake, she tells the tooth fairy not to get lost, she knows which colour you are on the inside (let’s talk feelings), she hides and I seek (playful mum)…Mum is so many things.
They are opportunities to colour in, to draw, to play games, to think and to express your love.
Just holding this book in my hand makes me feel happy. It is delightful. 🙂 I hope you have the pleasure of receiving or helping fill this one out soon.
