I got this ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

The occasion of a birthday provide the opportunity to look back at the long days spent waiting patiently for the baby to be born, the special day it arrives, and the miraculous perfection of every stage of its growth. Soft, warm colors and cozy images are accompanied by a spare text that perfectly captures the all-encompassing love parents for their children. This birthday book will resonate with anyone who has loved a child. It is a gift that every child deserves.

More info about this book:

Children's fiction would be one of my favorite genre. It wouldn't take too much time and, yeah, it doesn't need much effort to read it. When I remade account in Netgalley, I started to interest with children's fiction. One of them is this Mamoru Suzuki's work. Actually, I started to interest with this book because of the cover. Eugh, I couldn't resist a cat picture like that. So much cute.

My most favorite illustration in this book.
In essence, this book told us about a short letter from a mother to her son. The mother told her son about how he grew up from inside her tummy until when he could go anywhere. It was just a reminder about one special day when he could see the world with his own eyes. It's just a reminder that, no matter how far he would go, his mother would always remember everything about him.

I like Suzuki's work actually. The illustrations was cute and still tho, I like the cat. I always sad when I remember that my cat has been gone. But then, I still love cat. Even though this book was really thin--eugh, I just can hope that this book would be thicker, the simplest value from it has been delivered neatly. 

Finishing this book, make me wonder how's the other Suzuki's work.

Four stars for the cat.
