Read to Your Baby Every Day
I LOVE the gorgeous cover of Read to Your Baby Every Day with the sweet innocence of images from beloved nursery rhymes. Looks like an embroidered work of art. And when you open the Table of Contents, it also looks like an embroidered sampler.
My heart nearly stopped when I found this statement on the copyright page, "The illustrations were embroidered with thread and needle." Wow--such a marvelous idea! How I wish the publisher would offer a companion book with the patterns and color suggestions for each one!
This book elicits the warmth and safety of home. Each page is pure sweetness with a vintage embroidered illustration for each poem. The embroidered image offers a depth and whimsy to the page. Children will enjoy discovering new things on each page. The images are so true to life, readers will expect to feel fabric and stitching on the page.
What a truly beautiful way to introduce a child to nursery rhymes. This book sets beauty before the eyes of a child, and lilting rhymes before their ear. Accompanied with a warm lap, priceless memory making is guaranteed! What a beautiful gift this would make for a new baby or for a new parent or grandparent to share with a child in their life.
