A tender portrait of family that celebrates both the beauty and the chaos of life with young children—perfect for Mother’s Day and as a new-baby gift year-round!

The days are long, but when I'm with you, I blink and the years fly by.

From sunrise to nightfall, this family is on the go. And for every early wake-up, busy breakfast, missing shoe, and rush to get out the door, there is also a sweet smile, a “Mama, look!” and a snuggle before bedtime to make all of the day’s moments feel precious. The perfect gift for any caregiver, The Days Are Long, the Years Are Short is a day-in-the-life story of a family enjoying every minute of their messy, wonderful time together.

Genre:

  • "The simple scenes paint a warm portrait of parents who treasure moments that disappear all too quickly."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Morton creates a paean for parents just trying to cut through the chaos of their everyday lives and remember to enjoy what they have."
    Kirkus
