Book: Wishes for You

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=kiddandbook-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=0064437302&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=FFFFFF&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr&npa=1

When you wish upon a child
Makes no difference – strong or mild
Anything your heart desires
Can come true

Make a wish that’s free of pride
Ego, fear or dreams denied
Love your children as they are
As they love you

Note: The first time I read this book to Nick I cried – no wait, I sobbed. It’s that beautiful – without being sappy. The text is deceptively simple (yet stunningly deep) and paired with rich, realistic paintings (with multi-cultural families – yay!).

It’s a touching reminder of what parenting is about.

(Thanks Matt and Jenny!)
