A note from the author
In the very early days of being a mother to my son, I so deeply wanted him to hear my voice, but I wasn't always so sure what to talk about. I had an idea of sharing a word of the week with my son—a word that, in a moment of speechlessness, I could rely upon and explore with him. Words of Wonder started as a personal documentation of these words and flourished into a set of heartfelt, inspirational poems that both parents and babies can connect with. This isn't a parenting book. And it isn't quite a book just for babies. It's a book for both parents and babies that aims to help build a bond. In my wildest dreams, this is a book that helps parents through this remarkable time and remains a much loved book on the bookshelf for years to come.
