Shows a mothers love for a child. Growing up having a good relationship with your parents. Good for 2nd graders. Loved the illustrations.

This is a beautiful book. It looks like a kid book, and children can enjoy it too, but I think its aimed more towards mothers. It’s a sweet book coming from a mother’s perspective of seeing her child growing up and the things she wishes for her child. It could be used in the classroom to

demonstrate love but is better suited for the home. Although I’m not a mother, this book brought tears to my eyes.

This is a short but sweet book. It's about a mother ,speaking to her daughter, stating how she will always be there to watch her grow.

Someday explained the love a mother has for their children. I didn't know what to expect from this book, but this book kinda mad you sad. It made you realize that as you grow older your mother is always their for you. This would be a perfect book to read to children close to mothers day.

A mother reflects on the love she has for her child as she dreams of each milestone the child will reach from birth to bike riding to waving goodbye. Wonderful illustrations and a very touching story!

I cannot read this book without tears in my eyes. This is right up there with Love You Forever. I agree with other reviewers - this is probably more a good Mother's Day present then a book for children.

A cute book where a mother is speaking to her daughter & going through the different stages of life from baby, to being a mom, and growing old & gray. Easy read & fun/simple illustrations.

I really enjoyed this. I see a lot of different opinions of it and perhaps as an older mother I am aware more than I might be that the odds say I have less somedays ahead of me.

It somewhat reminds me of Goose by Molly Bang.
