Hilde Hagerup

My Child

A mum reflects upon everyday life and parenthood. Is she good enough?
Is there anything else she could do for her daughter? Isn’t it incomprehensible that she gets to be the mother of the most beautiful girl in the world?
We follow their time together through stressful mornings, kindergarden afternoons, nights where they end up in the same bed, playtime and home time — through worries and joy. But the greatest thing between them is the never ending love and the mutual happiness of being together.
This is a picturebook and a gift book for both mothers and fathers.

Illustrated by Kristin Roskifte.
