I was excited to work with the Thomas Nelson/Harper-Collins editors on this picture book by country-pop singer/songwriter, Brett Young. Love You, Little Lady was inspired by his hit single, "Lady", a song Brett wrote about his wife for his baby daughter. 

From the publisher:

There's something special about the love between a father and daughter. In Love You, Little Lady, award-winning singer-songwriter Brett Young writes a love letter to his daughter as he shares what it's like to hear her heartbeat, hold her for the very first time, and watch her take her first steps. This heartfelt picture book is ideal for kids ages 4-8 and shares:

    •    the wonder of becoming a new parent
   •    the unconditional love dads and moms share for their children
   •    beautiful artwork, and sweet rhymes inspired by Brett's lyrics

Love You, Little Lady makes a perfect gift for Father's Day, Mother's Day, baby showers, baptisms, and adoption parties--or for anyone watching their little sweetheart grow into an amazing young woman. This celebration of the relationship between parents and their child will remind you and your own little lady of the moment you realized that nothing would ever be stronger, or more tender, than the love you have for her.

 


 

Listen to Brett sing "Lady" and hear him read Love You, Little Lady
