There are no pages with paragraphs of words in this book, but instead 12 empty letters that prompt the parent to write letters to give to their child at a later date.
This is such a nice activity to get new or expectant parents thinking about the sort of parents they'd like to be and the possibilities for their child's future. As Jane and I have experienced, more often than not when you write something down on paper it often comes to fruition, so who knows, this might be a great little visualisation tool.
Part of the letters prompt memories, such as "your first home was like this...". This made me think we don't really have any tangible thing these days to replace the old-school photo album, so I like the idea of using this as a time capsule in that way.
I think this would make a really lovely and unique gift to new or expectant parents, and I can imagine gifting these letters at the right time could have a hugely positive impact on the relationship between a parent and their child.
Publisher's Blurb: This book of 12 fold-and-mail letters invites mothers to capture the fleeting memories of their babies' first years.
Each letter bears a prompt for mums to reflect on their hopes and dreams for their little ones.
The letters can be postdated, sealed up, and gifted for the years to come. In the future, their children get to break the seals to receive the greatest gift imaginable: a tangible expression of their mother's love.
This heirloom-quality keepsake makes a priceless gift for the expectant or the more experienced mother.
