When you were new, there were things you didn’t know.

The magic of being new is experiencing the world for the first time, learning that cuddles smell different at the beach—like coconut, salt, and sand—or realizing it’s hard to pick raspberries without eating at least one. Get swept up in the magic and wonder of seeing the world through the eyes of a child, and treasure the perfect, golden moments you share together.

Jennifer Harris’s lyrical and achingly precise text and Lenny Wen’s heartwarming illustrations celebrate that special love and connection between you and your new one.
