Held in Love

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books

Within a galaxy, a world is turning, and within a house hidden in the hills, a mother is reading and talking to her baby. The mother makes wishes for her child: that his hands will work and play; that his ears will listen and hear the singing and the silence. She prays that when tears flow, peace will follow, and most of all, that when her child looks to the stars, he will know that he is held in love by the universe.

This beautiful, quiet book captures a new mother’s hopes for her new baby, and a message that whatever happens in life, love will see them through.

Oamul Lu’s dreamy and warm illustration makes this feel like a very special book, perfect for new parents and anyone with little ones looking for a dreamy, cuddly read.
