Much-loved actor and radio host Kate Ritchie's first book is a beautiful tribute to the joy and anticipation of expecting a child.

When you were still a treasured bump, tucked safe away inside, I thought about you night and day and in my sleep - it's true. My heart was full of hope and love. I just couldn't wait to meet you.

A heartwarming story to share with the children in your family.

        Comments about I Just Couldn't Wait to Meet You:

        I loved reading this. The wonderful illustrations are sensitive and support the text so well. The end papers are my favourite as they reflect the everyday with the ultra sound pics, name lists and photos. The book is relevant to new parents and a great book to share as your children grow to express the excitement of planning for their arrival and also as they grow and change. Children love to hear stories about when they were little and the cute things they did. This book encourages this discussion.
