All I Hope For You

All I Hope For You


I wonder, my little one, who will you be
when you're out in this world, big and wide?

A bundle so precious and tiny and loved,
you will carry my heart by your side . . .

A beautiful and inspiring letter of hope and love to a child taking their first steps into the big, wide world. This heartwarming book expresses every parent or carer's hope that their child will be kind to others, caring to the world and, above all else, true to themselves.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, this is the perfect book to share together to help children find their way in the world and to give parents the confidence to guide them as they grow.

With stunning, dreamy artwork by new illustrator Kitty Harris, and a lyrical rhyming text by an exciting new voice in picture books, Kate Thompson.
