A mother is a nest, a mirror, a moon. The baby sees their mother in every aspect of their day. As the pages go by, the child grows. The mother who was a refuge becomes a road, a story, and a show. On the final page, the child is ready to take their first steps.

This unique story looks through the baby's eyes for an unexpected and affecting picture of parents and home—shown through bright, contemporary illustrations and special inks.
