I loved how the illustrations zoomed in and had a thread throughout the story. A sweet story about home and a new baby.

“What will her name be, Mommy?” “Well, she’s not quite with us yet,” said Mom. "But when will she have a name, Mommy?" said Francie. "Soon," said Mom. "Sometime soon,"

A sweet tale about an expectant mother and her young daughter driving home after a visit to grandmas. The two decide on a name for the new baby: Grace.

Bob Graham's soft watercolour illustrations evoke the tender bond between mother and the soon to be big sister. A must read for families expecting a new addition!
