Along Came You

Along Came You
by Karona Drummond
illustrated byEstelle Corke
published by Zondervan

Available for the first time as a fun and durable board book, the beautifully illustrated Along Came You is now perfectly suited for little hands and hearts. Ideal for Mother's Day, baby showers, birthdays, or any time a parent wants to express their love, this book's storyline highlights the positive ways in which parents' lives change when they have children. Author Karona Drummond, a certified elementary school teacher, employs storytelling techniques that will appeal to both the child and parent. The simple language and repetitive structure of the phrases make this a perfect read-along book that teachers, librarians, parents, and young readers will enjoy.


This is one of those books that makes you tear up a little as a parent.  It is delightfully sweet, and really makes you appreciate how your little one has entirely changed your life since his or her arrival!  This is an absolutely perfect book for an expecting mama this Mother's Day!  I am also adding it to my list of board books to include in a first library gift for baby showers!
