For many parents, watching their children grow up is bittersweet. “If I Could Keep You Little” is set to the words of this book by Marianne R. Richmond. It discusses lots of things we wish we could do for just a bit longer, while identifying the things to look forward to as children grow up!
Sing this song along with the book to your own children or young family members. You can also use this in your classes or sessions to facilitate reflection and encourage bonding between a child and their caregiver.
