“Three Squeezes truly warms the heart as it reflects on the unbreakable bond between generations. A must read book for all generations and you may need a tissue.” – Momma Braga
When you could neither talk nor stand, life’s hourglass still filled with stand, I gently held your tiny hand and gave it three soft squeezes.
When you awoke within the night and cried from fear and called for light, I held you safe with all my might and gave you three long squeezes.
Follow a father and his son from babyhood to baseball games to graduation and beyond in this loving saga about the unbreakable bond between generations.
Three Squeezes truly gives us the full picture of parenthood in the most beautiful way.
As we follow the parent journey of one dad, we see the bond that he shares with his son. We see how a father’s love is there through it all by his symbolic use of squeezes. These heartfelt gestures is then returned from son to father as he ages. Simply beautiful and tugs at heart strings.
As I care for my daughter, I am also seeing my parents age. I can see the full circle that we go through in parenthood and this beautiful children’s book depicts. It is hard not to shed a tear by the end as we can all relate to the unconditional love a parent has for their child.
Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give three squeezes 10 squeezes out of 5! A children’s story that will tug at your heart strings and it will become a staple in a family’s home. A must read for all generations.
