Author(s): Heather Potter
This is a book about me. My family has recorded all the precious moments and stories from my first years. My first smile, my first steps, my first celebration - it's all here for everyone to treasure for years to come. This beautiful baby record book includes plenty of room for photos, stories and keepsakes surrounded by exquisite sketches from award-winning illustrator Heather Potter.
This is a unique baby journal as it is non-gender specific, it does not mention 'mother' or 'father' but uses the terms 'family' and 'parent'.
