I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review.
This is a somewhat rhyming book about parents waiting for their kid. There aren't rhyming couplets, but the rhymes appear multiple times through what could pass as stanzas were this straight up poetry. I would have liked rhyming couplets more because they make my brain happy, but that's clearly not what the author was going for here.
The illustrations looked almost like children's drawings and gave a strong impression that this book is geared towards parents who have experienced fertility issues. There were lots of rainbows involved. That's not an experience I had so it didn't resonate with me personally. I think regardless of what type of pregnancy journey a family has, this book would be worth several re-reads because the ultimate message is that the parents waited for exactly the children they have. Overall I give this book 4.38 out of 5 stars. - Katie
