Summary
"Through the changing seasons, a couple waits for their baby while the animals in the forest and ocean near their home welcome their own young. The rhyming text describes the parents' emotions and dreams as they wait to welcome their new baby and tells the child, as it grows, how much they were loved and wanted even before they were born."--
Summary
Told from the perspective of new parents welcoming their baby into the world, a heartwarming love letter to young children by the award-winning author of <I>Sun Dog</I> features evocatively illustrated depictions of the mirrored seasonal activities of nearby animal families.
