From Our Editors
The Best Gifts is a loving, tender story of the first thing a mother can give to her child: breast milk. Family and friends bring gifts, but Sara's mother knows that the best gifts can't be bought. Years later, when Sara and her husband have a baby of their own, Sara discovers the very same gift – the best gift of all. A lovely picture book for explaining the process of breastfeeding to children, it also includes a resource guide at the back and related organizations for mothers.
