I think it's too tightly crop. The mom (i presume) seems a bit out of focus. If possible try to capture eyes maybe like a side view with the eyes looking at the book. Might want to do some photoshop and make it a bit more like soft focus.

Thanks a lot for your comments. Exactly the type of comments I was looking for. I am trying to learn and obviously getting comments like yours is the best way to get better. After all, mankind has achieved progress mainly because we can communicate.
