Must-Have Monday --A Prayer for a Blueberry Girl

found on Neil Gaiman's journal

“Keep her from spindles and sleeps at sixteen,
let her stay waking and wise.”

Coming soon this picture book by Neil Gaiman who reads it here while we get to explore the art work of illustrator, Charles Vess.

After writing this for his friend who was expecting a baby she and her husband referred to as "blueberry," Gaiman found himself doling out copies of this lovely poem to many other mothers-to-be who could see the magic and kindness of it. Now it's a beautifully illustrated book that all can enjoy.

A further celebration of girls... of daughters.
