If I Could Keep you Little is a cute/silly little children’s book about watching you child grow up. It has fast become my four year old daughter’s favorite book. The first time I read it to my younger children, she asked if I could read it again, so I did. She did this three times and she continues to bring it to me to read! It’s enchanting illustrations and rhyming verses are a delight to the children. Here’s a little sample of what I mean:
If I could keep you little,
I’d decide on matching clothes.
But then I’d miss you choosing

If I could keep you little
I’d cut your bread in shapes.
But then I’d miss you finding
“Hey! I like ketchup with my grapes!”
Marianne Richmond has captured the bittersweet moments of watching our children grow up, while wistfully recalling all the fleeting little moments that have already passed. If I Could Keep You Little is an endearing book inspiring parents to treasure each moment spent playing, talking, etc. with your child. A must-have for your family library, so it would be a great holiday gift idea to have beneath your Christmas tree this year.
