Helping her to blossom
You know just how she feels: her joy, her curiosity, her will to take on the world. And why she needs the guidance of the person who's closer than close: you. This inspiring companion, filled with wisdom and values and the poetry of daily life, is full of lessons about courage, kindness, respect, boys, her father, dressing up, and all that a mother can do to nurture her daughter as she grows into a woman.
It’s filled with helpful reassurance: Tickle her, play with her, give her piggyback rides. She’s not breakable. And accepting bittersweet reality: When it’s time—Let her go.
