What Wild & Wonder loved about this book:
When we read this, it encouraged us to think about all of the things we have achieved and experienced together so far. We talked about what adventures we hope we will experience together in the future.
What We’ll Build can be a great starting point for younger children to think about their hopes and dreams, as well as what ‘tools’ they will need to make these happen. It is also a stark reminder that our lives and the lives of our children are so intrinsically linked. We shape one another.
A lovely story about the importance of parent-child bonding, this book is both a wonderful bedtime story read as well a thoughtful gift for baby showers, birthdays, or for new dads. Readers aged 3 and up will appreciate this timeless story for its beautiful imagining of the what caregivers and children can accomplish together.
