Unique book perfect for Mother’s Day By Julie Stickel Rome Observer, Rome, New York, May 2006
With it’s release set for Mother’s Day, May 14, “Child of Mine, Know This” is a heartfelt book that touches upon the human spirit in children and their parents.
The journey to grow and be understood is captured through Rebecca Gittrich Whitecotton’s large hardcover book that includes many photos to compliment her choice of words.
“Child of Mine, Know This” has been designed for easy personalization.
Photos throughout the book have been printed as standard sized 5x7, 4x6, 3.5x5 or 2x3. To personalize this treasurable book, you can tape your own photos over the already existing photos.
This feature is incredibly convenient for those of you who enjoy scrapbooking but don’t always have the time. This book provides an easy yet emotional way to express your feelings and connect with the reader through your own photos.
With its inspirational messages encouraging children to be comfortable with who they are, the unconditional love that parents have for their children, and the option to personalize, this book is truly unique.
One of the many inspirational and heartfelt messages within the book reads,
“You are not a child in the eyes of the universe, in the arms of God, in the heart of all that is . . . I look at you with love . . . I know who you are. You are a beautiful blessing to the world.”
When asked what she hopes children will get from this book, Whitecotton answered, “I hope that kids everywhere read this book and say, ‘Wow, my parents actually do understand who I am. Maybe I can stop hiding my true self and let it shine.’”
Whitecotton has dedicated this book to her two children, Ethan and Alison who have long been the inspiration for her to write children’s books. As well as being a mom she is also a writer, editor and graphic designer with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a master’s degree in sociology of religion from the University of New Mexico.
