Eat Your Peas Daughter by Cheryl and mom Karpen (A Review)

What a treasure filled little book.  The heading says a 3-minute forever book.  Place no emphasis on the 3 minute part.  There were certainly sentiments in this book that are forever sentiments. The book is a book of promises from a mom to her daughter.   I thought that I would pass this book on to one of my daughters after I read it.  That was the point in choosing this particular book.  After I read through the book - I longed for my own mom.  I mean ached for her.   My mom lived out  these very words "If you ever need someone to talk to (really talk to), someone who will listen (really listen) to your worries, your joys, and your dreams...I promise to stop what I'm doing, give you my undivided attention, open my heart and listen."  It game me reason to ponder - to really think about how often I have NOT lived out that sentiment.  What a treasure this little book is. 

The scripture reference of Psalm 127:3 "Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward form him" was so fitting for this book.  It is certainly more than a 3 minute read.  It is a forever lesson in the love of daughters by their moms.  I am so glad my mom loved me this way. 

I think this book will make an awesome gift on very special occasions. 

I certainly recommend you check it out if you want to encourage your daughter or give her a special gift. 

BookSneeze has provided me with a complimentary book in exchange for my honest review.    Any review is my own opinion whether good or bad.
