FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States – October 8, 2022
Macey Warren wrote Fruit of Our Love to prepare young children for a new sibling by comparing the baby growing inside Mom to ever-larger fruits and vegetables—concrete objects from children’s everyday lives that they can understand.
This mother’s love song to her preborn baby takes families on a fun-filled—and factual—picture book about baby growth during pregnancy. Using vivid comparisons to fruits and vegetables, Fruit of Our Love traces baby’s development from “poppy seed” to “watermelon,” reminding young children of how they came into the world amid the same excitement and reassuring them of their place with their siblings and in their expanding family.
Macey Warren’s Fruit of Our Love is free and available for download on Amazon through October 8, 2022. Fruit of Our Love is rated 5 stars by those who have purchased and written a review of the book. Here’s what some of the reviewers have said:
