Product description

From the Author

Spending time with your children is a parent's best gift.
Spending time with the ones you love is the message of the book, and mother's milk is used as the ultimate symbol of love.

I can see this book being read to an older sibling of a new baby. Toddlers are often jealous of the new baby in the house and don't like all the extra time their mother is spending with the baby. They also have difficulty understanding the concept of breast feeding. The Best Gifts shows that while the new baby gets love in the form of mother's milk, the toddler is still getting love in other ways -- like cuddling and reading books together. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch is the author of sixteen books for children and young adults. The first edition of The Best Gifts was published in 1998. Marsha received the SCBWI inaugural Crystal Kite for Stolen Child, and the Order of Princess Olha, in recognition of her outstanding achievement in the development of the culture of Ukraine, in particular for her picture book, Enough (Fitzhenry and Whiteside, 2001). And no, you do not have to call her Princess Marsha.

Elly MacKay works with paper arts. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and then studied printmaking for a year at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. She lives near Owen Sound, Ontario with her family working on various illustration projects and teaching at the local art gallery.
