Pass on by that copy of On the Day You Were Born and tuck this into a shower gift instead.

There’s a lot to love between these pages. It’s a book that upsets expectations for adults but still manages to be fun for kids. And if you happen to want to give it to a new parent, I’m not gonna stop you. Not one little bit.
— Betsy Bird, SLJ
Genuinely heartwarming.
— The Horn Book Guide
A refreshing alternative to the hypersentimental entries in the ‘I love you more than anything!’ genre: sincere without being goopy.
