The ABC's of being a children's Librarian

Along Came You – Review

on April 27, 2009

Along Came You by Karona Drummond is a very touching and simple picture book about a business woman turned mother. Each beautifully illustrated page has the catch lines “before you…” “After you…” pointing out the change that a child brings to someone’s life. This book is a mom-daughter book, the illustrations by Estelle Corke are soft pastels of pinks, blues and yellows. Each page is in full color with about 12-15 words. The style seems very contemporary (at least the clothes that the mom wears seem very current). This book would make a good Mother’s Day read for mom’s with younger children.
