Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For more than fifteen years, this book has been a favorite gift to give new and expectant parents to celebrate the birth of their child. All of the earth seemed to know about this momentous event as word spread among the animals and the sun, moon, and earth awaited the baby's arrival. The sun lit up the day, the moon the night and "offered to bring a full, bright face, each month to your windowsill…" How fascinating to think that this entire world was made for a human child to enjoy and to thrive. The joy is echoed by the people who also waited for this birth "‘Welcome to the green Earth,' the people sang, as they wrapped your wet, slippery body. And as they held you close…" Young ones will also enjoy the lovely story of how welcome they are.
Combs
This gentle, gorgeous picture book is a perfect gift for the family who has just welcomed a child into their circle. It's also a wonderful book to read aloud to children who have started asking "Where did I come from?" but aren't ready for scientific answers.
