Reviews from Around the World "I bought two copies of this picture book as gifts for the mothers of my two young granddaughters. Thrity Umrigar is one of my favourite adult authors so I purchased the books online, sight unseen. I was not disappointed. The book is so perfect and charming, and the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. It would be the perfect book to buy for a baby shower gift or for any mother of younger children to read to her child. I really love it, and I highly recommend it." - Book Hoarder, Amazon
"This is a beautiful story and it has beautiful illustration as a mother tells her daughter all the things that happened when she was carried in her mother's belly that made her what she is today." - Dana, Goodreads
