My Baby Love written by Meredith Costain and illustrated by Beatriz Martin Vidal
Publication Date: May 2008
Category: Children’s Fiction
Age Guide: 5-9
Come to me, my baby love,
My morning child,
My bright-eyed dove...
A joyful celebration of mother-baby love,
From waking at dawn to playing, meal-times,
Bath-time and finally – sleeping at dusk.
My baby Love is beautifully written, the words flow with a passion.
For me it describes motherhood in a whole new way. With my baby on the way it makes me realise how much I really have to look forward to.
The illustrations done by Beatriz are so amazing. She is such a talented illustrator.
I recommend this book to anyone who is stuck for a gift for a first time mum or the mum that is on her second, third or fourth child as it’s a great reminder of the joys of raising a child.
My baby Love is available at all good book stores. Signed copies are available from the author for $25 free postage. Contact Meredith through her website for your signed copy.
