Description
There's something for every parent and child to enjoy in this delightfully fresh picture book that takes playful aim at the art of parenting'and all the hopeful, nail-biting expectations that go with it.What's a parent to think when raising a child doesn't happen quite the way it's expected to? Mom might envision a baby who sleeps through the night, but when baby gets fussy they'll both discover that 3:00 a.m. can be a beautiful time to be awake. And while the word baby uses most is NO!, her favorite word is definitely Mama.Told with quiet wisdom and Nancy Carlson's trademark sense of humor, here is a heartwarming and reassuring book that will invite children to ask ?what was I like when I was little?Nancy Carlson is also the author of ABC I Like Me!, which Kirkus called ?a sheer delight of self expression.'Nancy Carlson lives in Bloomington, Minnesota with her husband and three perfect children.
