Let Me Hold You Longer
With lighthearted illustrations and a sweet, reflective tone, best-selling author Karen Kingsbury encourages parents to savor not only their children's "firsts"—like first steps and first words—but the "lasts" as well. With the tenderness of a mother speaking directly to her child, Karen reminds us not to miss last days of kindergarten and last at bats in Little League amidst the whirlwind of life. Adapted from a poem in Rejoice, mothers and grandmothers everywhere will identify with the tenderhearted reflections in Let Me Hold You Longer. An ideal gift book for special occasions from baby showers to graduations.

Review by Shannon, March 23, 2012
Let Me Hold You Longer tugs at the heart in such a profound way! It is a touching reminder to all of us to make the most out of each day and moment that we share with our kids! Beautifully written, and full of warmth. I still to this day cannot read it out loud to my kids without chokinng up. I purchased this book for my baby (my own miracle boy) and Lets Go On A Mommy Date for my firstborn. I wrote them each a personal letter on the inside cover of "their" book, describing my love for them. Thank you for these wonderful treasures you have writen!
