Product Description


With lighthearted illustrations and a sweet, reflective tone, best-selling author Karen Kingsbury encourages parents to savor not only their children's "firsts"--like first steps and first words--but the "lasts" as well. With the tenderness of a mother speaking directly to her child, Karen reminds us not to miss last days of kindergarten and last at bats in Little League amidst the whirlwind of life. Adapted from a poem in Rejoice, mothers and grandmothers everywhere will identify with the tenderhearted reflections in Let Me Hold You Longer. An ideal gift book for special occasions from baby showers to graduations.

Back Cover Copy

Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury has created a touching reminder that the years of childhood fly too quickly by us.

As children grow, the blankets and pacifiers, ball games and dandelion bouquets fade into distant, tender memories. Most of us remember and faithfully capture our children's "firsts." Karen encourages readers to try to recognize and savor the bittersweet "lasts"--those milestones that often go unrecorded.

The illustrations by Mary Collier provide a lighthearted portrayal of everyday family life and bring a sense of authenticity and fun that you and your children can enjoy together. Let Me Hold You Longer is a heartwarming reminder of the precious process of growing up and the joys of watching it happen.

About the Author


Karen Kingsbury

Karen Kingsbury


Inspirational novelist Karen Kingsbury is becoming known as the "Queen of Clean." Her emotionally-driven dramas are finding a readership seeking riveting, uplifting, and squeaky clean contemporary stories. Month after month, Kingsbury is dominating the Christian Fiction Bestseller Lists with five to seven books simultaneously on the charts.

Prolific and popular, TIME Magazine called Kingsbury the "Nora Roberts of the religious set." Kingsbury has trademarked her brand of writing as Life-Changing Fiction & trade. Letters and e-mails from her readers demonstrate the power of Kingsbury’s gift of teaching relationship principles through storytelling. Daily, she receives notes from readers who have restored a relationship, forgiven a loved one, or sought a life of faith due to something communicated through one of her novels.

Kingsbury is excited about returning to Bloomington, Indiana, and the lives of the Baxter family in her new Firstborn series. "I can hardly wait to bring you the next pieces of these characters lives," she says. "So much lies ahead, so many triumphs and tough times, so much to learn and so many ways in which these characters will be stretched and tested." Kingsbury’s five-book Redemption Series, which originally introduced the Baxter family characters, has sold more than 700,000 copies over the past three years. Two of the Redemption books—Reunion and Rejoice—are nominated for an ECPA Gold Medallion Award this year. Kingsbury has written more than 30 books, including one title made into a CBS "Movie of the Week." She has 2.1 million books in print and is quickly becoming one of America’s favorite inspirational novelists.

Some of Kingsbury’s bestselling titles are Remember, Return, One Tuesday Morning, Oceans Apart, and A Thousand Tomorrows. She has been a finalist in the Romance Writers of America’s RITA competition for the best inspirational fiction. Her title A Time to Dance was selected as the first book in the Women of Faith fiction club. In 2004, she was a finalist for an ECPA Gold Medallion and a Retailers Choice Award. Her novel Gideon’s Gift is scheduled to become a major motion picture in Dec. 2005.

Early in her career, Kingsbury wrote true crime fiction, including Deadly Pretender, which was developed into a CBS television movie. Kingsbury started her career in journalism writing for the Los Angeles Times and LA Daily News, primarily on the sports beat.

Kingsbury is very family-oriented as the mother of six children—three adopted simultaneously from Haiti. Her readers feel a part of the family as Kingsbury updates them in every book with the latest news about her husband Donald, their daughter Kelsey and the five boys—Tyler, Sean, Josh, E.J., and Austin. Kingsbury and her family live in Washington.
