This is a book you will read to your child again and again. Perfect for any occasion, as well as for milestones including baby showers, birthdays, and graduations.

From the moment I saw you,
I started to pray.
Big prayers and small ones
I have sent God's way.

I prayed you felt safe,
full of joy and content.
When I whispered "I love you,"
you knew what I meant.

Editorial Reviews

Publisher Weekly Bestseller

A mother with wide, emerald eyes cradles her blanketed infant: "from the moment I saw you,/ I started to pray./ Big prayers and small ones/ I have sent God’s way." As the child grows from a baby to a girl, the mother is encouraging yet watchful: "I pray you grow strong, have passion and fight./ And stand up for what’s good with all of your might." Barnes’s ebullient artwork shows the child at a pool party, reading to her peers in a book nook, and playing in a band. A final spread shows that the child has not yet grown up; instead, the mother holds her baby on a hilltop under a gentle sky, projecting a life to come. New moms will welcome the wistful tone and scenes of a child’s joyful discoveries. Ages 3–7. (Feb.) -Publishers Weekly
