The Wish and the Wonder: Words of Wisdom for Expectant Parents
By Gail Perry Johnston
Originally published by HarperSanFrancisco, The Wish and The Wonder is a smart and upbeat collection of quotations on what to expect when expecting. Lovingly assembled, this little paperback offers more than meets the eye and hardly costs more than a greeting card.
The Wish and the Wonder is divided into five chapters: The Wish, The Worry, The Wait, The Work, and The Wonder. Celebrities, doctors, poets, and men and women who have been there offer their perspectives on everything from trying to conceive to the very nature of love itself.
Enjoy this book as soon as you start planning a family! And give it as a gift as soon as a pregnancy has been announced. It is informative and affirming, a blessing for parents-in-the-making.
