The Lovereading4Kids comment
Feisty in its hopes and wishes for a modern baby girl, this is also an enchanting lullaby which is warmly illustrated. The hopes for the baby girl include, “let her have brave days and truth”, “trust and delight in her youth” as well as “Grant her the wisdom to choose her right path, free from unkindness and fear.” Taken together, it is a heart-warming guide to life. A gorgeous book to share with your toddler and for children to be inspired by as they grow in confidence as young readers.
Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman wrote Blueberry Girl for a friend who was about to become the mother of a little girl. He has turned the deeply personal wish for a daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up. Illustrated throughout with gorgeous art by Charles Vess, whose work can also be seen in Susanna Clarke's The Ladies of Grace Adieu.
'A great baby present'
'It is really a book for mothers and daughters (whatever their ages) as it celebrates the glory of growing up ... very moving'
'Highly unusual picture book, which would make a good gift for new parents'
'The skilful poetic rhythms and phrases of the word pictures, together with the artfully designed pages and the paintings of the renowned Vess, create a charmingly idealised feel-good factor'
