Young children can change your world forever. Over the years, families have taken many different forms. But one thing remains constant: adults are forever changed by the arrival of a child. The love and sense of wonder they feel for this small life deepen as each day passes. John Farrell and Maurie J. Manning offer rhythmical words and tender, playful paintings to show the emotional connections between grown-ups and their little ones.
