Crescendo is a visual and poetic celebration of the transition to motherhood, featuring 47 gorgeous watercolor illustrations and a corresponding poem. The illustrations follow the transformation of a mother’s shape throughout her pregnancy, artfully and gracefully delineated not only by images of a mother’s profile, but by rich, sweeping scenes from nature. At last, there is an image of a mother embracing her newborn child, at once lilting and reverent. An ode to mothers everywhere, Crescendo is a book to share and to treasure.
Illustrated by Alessandro Sanna (The River, Pinocchio: An Origin Story) Poem by Paola Quintavalle.
