My Little Miracle

Title: My Little Miracle
Author: J Beck & J. Croyden
Publisher: Scholastic
Year: 2007

My Little Miracle is a sweet board book. It has gentle, flowing, rhythmic text alongside some very cute photographs. There are photographs of babies, toddlers, and some nature shots as well. I really loved the photography. It was just well done. Very interesting. And I think people of all ages can ooh and aah over the cute and adorable babies.

Here is a sample of the text:

Welcome to the world of smiles and hugs...when tucked into bed or cuddled in rugs.
Enjoy warm sunshine and feel soft rain. Look for a rainbow when the sun shines again...

But my favorite part of the text:

Let stories and books bring the magic of words...

And of course there is a photograph of a parent reading to a child and pointing to each word as its read. (Or I suppose the parent could be pointing to a picture. The point is that it's an interactive process.)

Overall, I enjoyed this one a great deal. Which leads us to Little Miss's response.

(Written by her mama of course)

Little Miss found this book to be quite comforting. She appeared to respond most happily to the words as they were read to her. This is most likely because her mother found the book to be quite precious and thus read the words with a very loving voice that cracked a bit as she got teary eyed.

And to give credit where credit is due, the photos are by her mama presumably...and the beautiful, beautiful quilt is by MY mom :)
