Summary

I was a flower with no pot 

I was a polka with no dot   What did I do before you came along and changed the tune? 

     Through simple, yet lively text and whimsical illustration, the love from parent to child, or lover to lover, or friend to friend, is celebrated. The perfect gift for baby showers, Valentine’s Day, birthdays, weddings, and beyond. Before You also works perfectly as a comforting and joyful read-aloud for parents to tuck their children into bed with. For fans of perennial favorites like I Like You and Guess How Much I Love You.
