This beautiful book is the perfect gift for parents-to-be.
There are fill-in sections for every stage of the new-born baby’s arrival into the world, from pages on what time the baby was born and what he or she weighed, to spaces later in the book for photos and the baby’s hands and footprints.
The book is illustrated throughout with Jill Barklem’s wonderfully observed paintings from her Brambly Hedge books, and there are appropriate quotes on every page from Poppy’s Babies.
