“This is perhaps one of those rarest books, a children’s book that can equally be enjoyed by parents… It is a very heartwarming story that would make you want to come back to over and over again.”
-- Dr. Bojan Tunguz, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer
“... a lovely children’s book (or maybe parents’ book?)... The illustrations by Scott Rim are charming, and anyone who’s in the midst of the heaven and the hell of parenthood will be able to relate. Jane’s story reminds parents of what they had to give up, but also argues that it was worth it.”
