Publisher's Summary

Before her baby was born, this mother just knew everything was going to be perfect! She was certain that her baby would sleep through the night and be happy all the time. Well, that's not exactly how it turns out. But as this mother is quick to learn, imperfection has its perks. How else would she discover how beautiful 3:00 a.m. can be, or how much more fun it is to go on picnics than to eat in fancy restaurants?

Although raising her little girl is more challenging than she imagines it will be, this new mom finds that it's life's surprises that turn childhood (and parenthood!) into an adventure.

Not quite what I expected

The audio/narration was nice but I, and my kids, were very disappointed that no pictures from the book were shown, only the cover. I know the point of this system is to listen to audio but little children love and need pictures to go along with any story. The story itself was alright, I wouldn't buy the book and am glad it was free (first book on this app).
