Sara is a happy little girl who learns that, no matter what troubles may
come her way, from first days at school to being teased, her mother is
just around the corner to comfort her with loving arms and kind words:
“Close your eyes, my baby. This too shall pass. Hush the hurt my
heart. Tears may fall but I am here, so hush.” As Sara grows from a
little girl to a typical teenager, her mother’s words are there to
comfort her when she encounters her first heartbreak. When Sara becomes
a mother herself, she passes along her mother’s words of love and
comfort to her own little girl.

Beautifully written and delicately illustrated in pink, mauve, and aqua
tones, Hush is a special little book to be shared by mothers with their
little girls. Highly recommended.
