About the Book

The perfect book for growing families everywhere...

I thought I could not love another, not a sister, nor a brother. But just like magic, my love then grew when I was blessed with more of you.

From bestselling author Sarah Ayoub and debut illustrator Mimi Purnell comes an ode to the heart-expanding love that swells and overflows with each addition to a family.
