Gracie's Gift Book Review & Giveaway

I was contacted recently to see if Little Diva and I would like to review Gracies Gift (HERE) By Andrea Trosclair. The cute book uses bows to symbolize what gifts our daughters are and the book showcases the deep love between a mother and daughter. It's beauty from 32 pages from cover to cover is illustrated by Sean Gautreaux. List price is $16.95.

The author used her own two daughters as inspiration for the book. Her "gifts" that she celebrates and gives thanks for. It was a perfect book for Little Diva and I read together a few times. She also enjoyed reading it to Little Dude.

With Little Diva's birthday a few short weeks away, this book was filled with birthday-themed excitement. Little Diva has struggled with us for years to put her hair in her standard (and well-known) pigtails. In the book, Gracie is frustrated with her mother for wanting to put bows in her hair. She ends up wearing the pretty bow that matches her pretty party dress.

At her birthday party, Gracie realizes that she is just like the pretty gifts that she's receiving, topped with froofy bows. She, too is a precious gift.

Sadly, I learned this week that eight year olds are too old for pigtails and bows anymore. :( So, Little Diva is sporting only her sides up now; sans bows. My big girl is growing up .... but is still just as much of a precious gift as ever.
