I always like to buy a new stack of books this time of year for Henry’s birthday and Christmas. This is one of my very favorite books,Where You Came From by Sara O’Leary. The little boy’s name is Henry (!) and it’s a really sweet, beautifully written, and gorgeously illustrated discussion between the mother, father and son as they try to remember where he came from, “Don’t you remember? Your mother grew you in her garden. She said the hardest part was waiting, be patient, stopping herself from picking you too soon”.
I’d highly recommend it for a young child or toddler whose too young for the real birds and bees talk. A friend recommended it to us a year ago and I still can’t get through it without tearing up a little bit. It’s so sweet.
Stay tuned! Next week I’ll be sharing my top ten books for toddlers
