Books: If I Could Keep You Little
If I Could Keep You Little is a sweet hardcover book from bestselling and award-winning author Marianne Richmond.
The book, written in insightful prose, showcases the moments in a child’s life as they grow.
Here’s an excerpt:
“If I could keep you little,
I’d decide on matching clothes.
But then I’d miss you choosing
Dots on top and stripes below
If I could keep you little
I’d cut your bread in shapes.
But then I’d miss you finding
“Hey! I like ketchup with my grapes!”
Richmond’s illustrations are charming and reading through the book, it touched me. As a parent, If I Could Keep You Little might make you appreciate your little ones being so young before they grow up and fly the nest! This book is going to make you go “awwww.”
