Description


A parent's ode to "anticipatory joy," by Caldecott Award-winner Matthew Cordell. The sweet companion to Dream and Hope.

As an elephant couple embarks on their life together, thoughts of children are far away -- at first. But as the desire for a child grows, so do unexpected challenges. And it's only after thwarted plans and bitter disappointment that their deepest wish miraculously comes true. This "deceptively simple" story celebrates the profound joy of becoming a parent.
