Praise for Don't Forget

Are you looking for that ONE book, the one that is so beautiful, the one that you can gift to your friends and know it's going to give them goosebumps as they read it with their kids? Well look no further . . . this exceptional book Don't Forget packs a hell of a punch. I can see it now, the modern classic that we give new babies, gift our children along with handwritten notes as they finish school, and pick up as an adult to be reminded of the things we've let go of without realising.
