Personal Opinion:

I really don't know how to begin my review. While I loved the book, especially the diverse illustrations of children and women, I hope it's not a book that I will be using it soon. The book is designed to be personalized for the child, and I can imagine that all sorts of people, from those with cancer to some mental illnesses can use the format to explain to the child what is going on, and to show the child how much they care for them. All in all, a beautiful story designed to show the child how much they mean to you through this difficult time
