The Reason I Held You Close

Will always be there for you!

Parents fondly recollect the beautiful times they have with their children. They guide you to make the right choices. They hold up when you fall. And being loved is special. Parents watch and rejoice in every stage of their child’s growth. And they continue to cherish the memories with their children and take pride in their accomplishments.

We picked this book for its cover. The storyline expresses how parents cherish their time with their children. The illustrations are calming and beautiful and work well for the story. And the book ends with a religious undertone.

The Reason I Held You Close by Evelyn Garland is a whimsical-styled illustrated book that captures parental emotions beautifully.
