Publisher's Description

What happens when the pleasures of a tidy, carefully decorated home are traded for the excitement of high chairs and noisy toys? When quiet evenings and carefully planned schedules are traded for busy days and crazy nights? What happens when the desire to experience joy is replaced with the desire that another would experience joy? Karona Drummond weaves images of life before kids with life after kids. Children will delight in this love song written to them about the joyful change they bring about and how the loving sacrifices of their parents transform a simple life into an abundant life. This book is a truly a touching glimpse and a warm reminder of the parent heart of God.

    This review was written for Along Came You.
    I was overjoyed with the opportunity to review this book. While scanning the numerous titles available for childrenmy eye was caught by this beautiful illustration of a mom and a little girl (illustrated by Estelle Cooke).This book made me cry, smile and remember what a beautiful honor and blessing it is to be a mom. I read this over breakfast to my twin daughters and decided to personalize it as I read it to them. Every time I read the phrase Along Came YouI would personalize it with Along came Rylan and Skylar.My girls were captivated and quickly asked questions on what life was like before they were born. The book offered me a wonderful opportunity to share that while life was beautiful before it was amazingly beautiful now.because God gave them to me.I would recommend this book to any mother, old or newbut make sure you bring them some tissueit will touch their heart and yours. Beautiful.

    This review was written for Along Came You.
    Along Came You by Karona Drummond and Estelle Corke is a touching look at how a mother's life changes after she has a child. First, Mia's thoughts: The book was about Mommy and me and how much we love each other. I really liked at the end where the mom said that life was amazing after you [the little girl]. That was the sweetest thing! There was a funny picture in there where the mom had food in her mouth so she looked like a walrus *giggles*. This book made me feel a thousand times a million happy because it reminded me of our family and my family makes me happy! It made me laugh, and I love to laugh! Now my (Mom's) thoughts. This book about a mother's love thoroughly captured the fun and joy of being a mother in the subtle and not so subtle ways our lives change. Meals, travel, and even sleep will never be the same after a child is born. Corke's illustrations have just the right amount of whimsy and emotion. The language is simple, and the repetitive structure allowed Mia to try to guess what was coming next. It's a sweet book, perfect for expecting or new moms, or even for old timers like me!
