Children's Corner: Before You Came

This is another one of those books like Alison McGhee's Someday (though I don't sob nearly as much while reading this) that is more for the parent than for the child. With it's simple telling of how perspective changes upon becoming a parent, Before You Came is one of those books you want to save to give to your child when they have children.  

However unlike Someday, I think there is a level of accessibility for children; especially those who are often curious as to what things were like before they were born.  Plus the illustrations by David Diaz are incredible.  Honestly, you could deconstruct the book and hang the framed pages on the walls -they are gorgeous!  I think this is a fantastic book for a good cuddle and is yet another discovery that will be added to the permanent collection.
