Along Came You is written from the mother's perspective as she explains what her life was like before and after becoming a parent. For each "before" explanation, the mother is shown doing the activity by herself and "after" she is doing something with her daughter. Before the house was quiet... After the house was filled with joyful noise...
This is a fun little book for parents and children to share together. But I was also impressed by how easily this could adapt to an adoption scenario. The story focuses more on the relationship than the process of having a baby so it's great for all parenting relationships.
The illustrations are beautiful, the language is simple and rhythmic, and the story is sweet. Wonderful for a child who needs a little mommy time. The recommend age is 4-7 years, but I think it would be great to share with a younger child as well.
