Click here to learn an easy but powerful way to heighten your appreciation of every moment you have with your cub.
Click here to learn how to start a cherished birthday tradition that your child will increasingly treasure as the years go by.

One more thing: If there’s a kid in your life who likes to laugh, Kids Pick the Funniest Poems will make a wonderful present. I wrote five poems for it but that’s not why I’m recommending it.

I love sharing these ideas with parents (and grandparents) of little ones. Please feel free to pass them along!
