Synopsis

Based on the author's own experience, I Already Know I Love You describes the cavalcade of feelings that comes with being a grandfather for the very first time. Beginning with anticipating the new baby's arrival, this book celebrates all the moments, great and small, that a new grandpa is ready to share. Whether it's taking a nap together or rooting for the Yankees, this grandpa just can't wait. Lush and dreamy pastels complement the heartfelt text, and together they celebrate all the joy a brand-new baby brings to the world.

The father of two grown daughters, Jennifer and Lindsay, Billy Crystal lives with his wife, Janice, in California. Elizabeth Sayles, a well-known illustrator of children's books, is also an adjunct professor of illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
