Product description

From Booklist

PreS-K. Beginning with the words "I hope," each sentence in this book declares parents' desires for their children. Expressed in very few words, the statements often distill complex emotions stirred by the love of a child: "I hope you will have moments when you're so happy, you'll feel the sun is shining from inside you"; "I hope you will know what you think and feel and not let other people tell you." Some thoughts are more straightforward: "I hope you will love to read." Sorensen's realistic paintings catch the loving sparkle between family members as they depict ethnically diverse people in images that amplify the spare text. A close-up of two children intent on a caterpillar's progress illustrates the wish "I hope you will always be curious." A picture of folks on a multigenerational picnic accompanies the words "I hope you will always be part of a family." This tender, never maudlin book gives expression to feelings too often left unsaid; it's ideal for lap sharing. Ellen Mandel

Review

“Distills complex emotions stirred by the love of a child. Gives expression to feelings too often left unsaid.” (ALA Booklist)

“…art…rich in dense color…alive with visible brush strokes… invariably captures specific moments and images…[while] speaks of universal truths.” (School Library Journal)
