Description


This sweet and playful board book features bold, high-contrast black-and-white illustrations that babies can actually see!

In simple, beautiful verse, bestselling Feminist Baby creator and two-time Emmy Award winner Loryn Brantz narrates the journey that parents take to have their perfect little one.

New York magazine's The Strategist chose It Had to Be You as one of the "Best (Nonobvious) Baby Books to Bring to a Shower." As The Strategist stated: "Because of its high-contrast color scheme (with red accents), it’s easy for babies to see the illustrations. Plus, the lyrical text is a love poem to the child that’s as soothing and sweet as a lullaby."

With lyrical text from parent to baby, It Had to Be You is perfect for fans of I’ve Loved You Since Forever and Guess How Much I Love You. A must-have addition to every baby’s nursery and a perfect gift for baby showers, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day.

For every one of our wishes, for every bump along the way, now that you’re here, we’ve known all along...it had to be YOU!
