Book Review: I Prayed for You

I loved this book.

Hard pages perfect for little hands, this delightful little book tells the story of a Mama bear and how much her little cub was wanted. She shares about how she felt the first time her little cub was held, took first steps, prayed, changed clothes, got in trouble, and went to school.

What I really loved about this book is that it works perfectly for biological and adopted children. As an adoptive mom, this is something I so greatly appreciate. In addition, while the little cub is in blue, there is no reference to the cub being a boy or girl -- allowing the book to work for either gender. 

This book would also work for single moms as well as it is simply the story of a mother's love with no mention of a Papa bear. 

I found this book incredibly sweet and one I cannot wait to read to my four little cubs! From before these sweet babies are born, and for every part of their futures, Mama covers them in prayer. Every spread shares a different prayer, and mamas everywhere will resonate with this eternally important message. 

A fantastic gift for a new mom -- adopted or biological!

Booksneeze provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
