Collected words of wisdom to share with a loved one as they take the next step into their future, each accompanied with painterly illustrations that bring to life each of the thirteen life lessons shared, most importantly, “I hope you will know I will always love you!”

…as you wonder and marvel and grow, There are some things in life that I hope you will know … So begins a love letter from an unnamed narrator to their dearest one. Rhyming couplets peppered with metaphor offer readers thirteen heart-felt and admirable credos, together presenting a guide/template/map for a life well lived. Far from being instructional or heavy-handed, these collected words of wisdom express the narrator’s deepest wishes for their cherished one as they step into their future, perhaps most importantly that they are loved unconditionally. This joyfully illustrated and artfully designed package is the perfect gift for a loved one of any age experiencing a milestone moment, whether a birthday, graduation, marriage, baby shower, bar/bat mitzvah, or simply as a reminder that “I will always love you.”
