To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love giving gifts to my girls that mean something and are functional. My girls love books and this is literally the sweetest one I've read to them yet. Being a mom is the best thing I've ever done, but knowing that I'm preparing them to be their own person and let them fly independently someday is so hard. This book helped to remind me too that I'm preparing them to be that independent person!
Marianne Richmond's book is Fantastic! In fact, she does her own writing and illustrations. How awesome is that?!
Walking us thru life with our littles and up to launching them into the world. What can you Really promise your kiddos? I couldn't wait to add this book to my library and you'll want to do the same. The perfect gift too, it feels great, the illustrations are beautiful and it has a wonderful message to carry for a lifetime! Marianne is a woman of many talents, lots of love and a Heart of Gold! Thank you Marianne, you really touched me as a mom of 3 who have launched.
During this time of so much uncertainty, racial inequality, political unrest, COVID restrictions, this book is a perfect conversation starter for many age groups. There are certain life difficulties that we cannot promise our children they can avoid but the most important things in life such as love and security we can promise to give them, today and always!
