Much-loved actor and radio host Kate Ritchie's first book is a beautiful tribute to the joy and anticipation of expecting a child.

When you were still a treasured bump, tucked safe away inside, I thought about you night and day and in my sleep - it's true. My heart was full of hope and love. I just couldn't wait to meet you.

A heartwarming story to share with the children in your family.

“ Straight from the heart . . . The perfect gift for a new or expecting parent, or for a soon-to-be-sibling who needs a reminder that they, too, were once a precious bump. ” This Charming Mum
