Debra Frasier first impressed audiences with her magical celebration of the birth of a child with On the Day You Were Born. Filled with bold and beautiful woodcut illustrations and poetic text depicting the first day of a child's life, the outstanding picture book sold millions of copies to expectant parents.
Now parents and caregivers are treated to the wonder of the original book formatted into a splendid photo journal, with eight slots for photos of the newborn and space to write of the baby's first-day events. Particularly charming is the illustration of a joyous circle of people dancing around the mom and baby, with black shadow images of animals around them and the sun ablaze overhead. The corresponding page allows proud parents to include a photo and write the names of people who welcomed their baby on that momentous day.
Frasier has an amazing ability to relate the birth of a child to the planets and the stars. She understands that as we prepare for the birth of our children, the earth anticipates the splendor of a new human. This photo journal is a loving and glorious way to celebrate a new baby in the family and in the world. (Amy Barkat)
