'I used to look up at the sky, and find the biggest, brightest star.

I'd ask for it to find you, and bring you to me, from afar.'

Think universe gazing, butterfly belly explosions, and fairies dancing. Think animal high-fives, hoola-hooping, tea parties, and party hats. A journey of celebrations, dancing and singing leading up to a very special day – the day a little miracle entered the world.

Before You Were Here has been thoughtfully written and illustrated by two Mamas who live in the sunny Nelson / Tasman region of New Zealand, and are hugely passionate about spreading love to the little ones.

Recommended for children 1-4 but loved by all ages.
