5.0 out of 5 stars What A Darling Book! 7 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after reading a very positive review in The Green Parent magazine this year. I was not disappointed. My two year old loves it, and it gave us an opportunity to discuss the similarities between the characters eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby sibling and our family, who is awaiting a baby in September.

I found plenty of things to talk about with my son, outside of the storyline, from the colour of the flowers in the bautifully sweet images, to the clothes the characters were wearing, counting the toys in the bedroom or the visitors who arrive to see the newborn. I think with any book, you get out what you put in, and there is certainly enough here to warrant my toddler asking for "When the World Was Waiting for You" again and again.

Purchased this on the birth of my new great neice - my neice had lost a baby earlier this year and I felt that the words in this book totally captured the anticipation and delight that her arrival at the beginning of December brought to the family.
