Neil Gaiman wrote this book for a friend who was about to give birth to a baby girl. He and the illustrator have turned what started out as a personal wish for the new baby girl into a book that celebrates the journey growing up that we all wish for our little girls.

The book follows the beloved baby as she grows up into a young woman- the sentiments are what we all wish for our daughters, and what all daughters wish for. This is a poem and prayer both for those young women in our lives and what we wish their lives to be.

"This is a prayer for a blueberry girl....
let her go places that we've never been,
trust and delight in her youth.

Give her all these and a little bit more,
gifts for a blueberry girl."

This book is a delight and one that you will read over and over as that special girl in your life grows up.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
