If I Could Keep You Little

This is one of those books that would have been great fun when our children were little. I can remember, at various stages of their growing up, times when my wife and I thought it would be great to keep them at a particular age. Of course, we can't do that, and now ours are an attorney and a teacher.

Marianne Richmond has crafted another adorable book that parents, grandparents, and even not so small children are sure to enjoy.

Product Description on Amazon.com



IF I COULD KEEP YOU LITTLE exemplifies Marianne's real insights into the human spirit and her beautiful illustrations that will touch children and adults and that are sure to be cherished for generations to come. Taking the reader on a journey of memory and expectation, IF I COULD KEEP YOU LITTLE showcases the fleeting little moments that reveal how a child changes and grows.

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!"

Be sure to check out her many other titles, too.

A copy of the book was provided by the publisher for this review.

Reading is the most ideal habit of a person... So as adult we should encourage our children's to make the reading habit part of their daily routine in order them to gather knowledge and be able them to expand their intelligence.. We should encourage them to read books for young children as their fundamental source.
