Book Review: Go to Sleep (I Miss You): Cartoons from the Fog of New Parenthood by Lucy Knisley

I don't have kids. But I am the oldest child, my youngest sibling, my half-brother, is 12 years younger than me, and he slept in my room until he was four. I got up in the middle of the night with him scores of time, and taught him how to climb out of his crib before he could walk. I also was a nanny in college for infant twins. I am very good with babies. So this lovely, sweet, occasionally distracted memoir in cartoons about being a brand-new mother still managed to speak to me despite my lack of child. Lucy's exhaustion, pain, hunger, and LOVE all come through with a few strokes of the pen. Made me appreciate mothers everywhere, and also so glad I'm not one myself.

THE most perfect baby shower gift ever.

This book is published by First Second, a division of Macmillan, my employer.
