of adventures we’ll have as you grow, wild and free.
For the days may drift past, but the years will sail by,
and we’ve just eighteen summers to share, you and I…"
From beloved storytellers Penny Harrison and Leila Rudge comes a tender and timeless ode to the unbreakable bond between parent and child, and a celebration of the moments that weave together to become eighteen summers to treasure.
