Synopsis

Do You Remember? by Helen Docherty

'I can't do it!' 'It's not easy learning to do new things,' said Mum. 'But you've always got there in the end.' Do you remember the first time you got dressed all on your own? You wanted to choose the perfect outfit. Do you remember the first time you jumped with both feet together? You landed right in the middle of a puddle and poor Grandpa got a bit wet, but we all clapped anyway. A touching, warm and intimate look back over the great achievements of a young child's struggles to learn something new, the help of their mother encouraging them to remember all the amazing things they've done before, like smiling, sitting up, and walking. Beautifully illustrated by Mark Beech, Do You Remember? will boost children's self-esteem and bring a tear to every parent's eye. This is the ideal gift for mothers.
