Book Review - Hello My Little One, It’s Me Your Father
Adding a child to a family is an important milestone in anyone’s life. For most mothers, bonding begins with the child from the moment a mother realizes she is pregnant. For most fathers, however, bonding usually doesn’t start until after the child is born. Elvin R. Freytes is trying to assist dads with the bonding process in his book, “Hello My Little One, It’s Me Your Father” (ISBN 146622410X).
Freytes has created a movement he has called MaJenDome (pronounced Ma-Jen-Dum) with the goal to get fathers more involved with the pregnancy experience and raising children. Written as a poem, the book for expectant fathers is to be read aloud to the child in the expectant mother’s womb. It allows the father to develop a strong bond with the mother and their unborn child.
The inspiring poem is written in the form of the father’s oath to the mother and his soon-to-be-born child. The father tells his child about the wonderful things they will do and learn together as the child grows. From teaching the child to walk and talk to knowing the difference between wrong and right and dealing with friendship and love, this book is designed for the father to tell the mother and the child that he will be there to provide support, guidance and care.
“I believe this is the first children’s book for an expectant father to read to his unborn child,” Freytes says. “My dream is to translate this book into every language to inspire expectant fathers all over the world to support the expectant mother and stay involved in their children’s lives from the very beginning.”
“Hello My Little One, It’s Me Your Father” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
About the Author
Elvin R. Freytes is founder of the MaJenDome movement, which is dedicated to inspiring expectant fathers to read to their unborn child.
My Take on the Book
Elvin R. Freytes had a vision in 2002. This vision was a child saying to him MaJenDome. In 2010 he decided to create this book for expectant fathers to read to their children in the womb. He hopes his poem will inspire expectant fathers to support expectant mothers and stay involved in their child's life.
This short poem tells of all the things a father can teach their child. Some of the phrases are:as you grow I will teach you to read, I will teach you the difference between right and wrong. At different intervals the poem repeats "I am your father and I love you."
This little book may be that perfect gift for the expectant father. So many times the emphasis is on the expectant mother with the baby showers and the gifts and the father is in the background. He just as important and needs to feel connected in the entire process. This little book could just be the inspiration for him to really feel a part of this whole process of a new life he has helped to create.
I encourage you to look at this book.
