If you have children, you know that all of them are special to you. But your first child is unique and incomparable because they were your very first; they made you a parent. You went through so many meaningful first milestones and indescribable ups and downs that first year; those first few years. You transformed into a different person. Life changed forever—for the good, of course—and was never, never the same. This is a special book for reminiscing and stirring wonder in your child as you read it together at bedtime.
You Were the First was written by Patricia MacLachlan, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin and published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. The illustrations were inspired by Park Slope in Brooklyn, New York.
