When I Hold You by Ashley Huffstutler with Illustrations by Airin O'Callaghan
Found this beautiful board book that celebrates a mother's love for her child and how that love stems from God's love for us. With passages from scripture on every page, When I Hold You highlights the powerful bond between mother and child. Written in rhyme, here's an excerpt: "When I hold you close today, your gentle breaths take mine away. When your tiny hand grabs mine, God's tender nearness comes to mind."
With whimsical illustrations that seem to draw a parallel between the beauty of humanity and the beauty of the natural world, When I Hold You presents families with a way to talk to children about God while celebrating a mother's unwavering love.
