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.
Alternative Family Magazine
From the Publisher
"A book filled with reverence for the natural order of the world

"Reading this picture book aloud to a child, even the most jaded among us
may feel again the sheer miracle of our human existence. A+ "

    A great gift for a new baby!

    Love this book for a new baby! I am sure it will become the favorite to read to the baby for years to come. In the back of the book, the author has explanations of each of the parts of nature that she mentions happening on 'the day you were born' ~ it is quite sweet!

    One of my favorite books for kids

    If yuu want to make a child feel special, this book is a must.
    I read it for my son when he was 3 years old and we both loved it.
    We still read it once in a while and every time we finish the book, my son always smiles. He thinks this book was written just for him.

    This is a favorite book to give as a baby gift.

    This is one of my very favorite books to give as a baby gift. We received it as a baby gift for our daughter and it became a much-loved book right away. I prefer the hard back book verses the board book because it gives educational information in the back. However, the board book is still a great book that will be enjoyed for years. The message is beautiful and so welcoming to the new addition to the family. It celebrates the child.

    Great baby gift!

    Some good friends gave us this book when my youngest son was born in 1994, and for many years it was a tradition to read it on his birthday (and many times throughout the year as well!) Now I give it as baby gift, along with the idea of the tradition we started and it's always very well received. <BR/><BR/>It's a beautiful story that helps us all realize that we are an important part of God's world!

    I love this book.

    This is my current favorite book for gift giving for new babies and small children. I am so happy that it now comes as a board book. The hard back is definitely worth the price for a permanent collection, but small children love to hear this and look at the pictures over and over, so the board book will get lots of use.

    Great book!!

    I got this book by chance. I had gotten some books as a baby gift and had to return some that I already had. I picked this book up off the shelf and quickly paged through it before deciding to buy it, not having any idea how great it was. I bawled the first time I read it to my newborn son. It still brings tears to both my husband and my eyes EVERY time we read it to our now 10-month old son. I highly recommed this book.

    still brings tears to my eyes...

    i read this while i was pregnant with my long awaited first child. i got so emotional i put the book down and left the store- i was so embarrassed! i chalked it up to hormones. however, as i read this to my daughter each day i still get a lump in my throat. the miracle of her birth in relation to the miracle of the earth we live in continues to put life in perspective.

    Better than all the others for newborns!

    I have given this book (and now book & CD) to all my friends who are new moms and their little ones. Usually I personalize the book because Frasier makes it easy to do! the story is the most heartwarming for young and old and the CD is a gentle lullaby. All the others are very darling newborn books but this is truly a treasure!

    A great gift book! A must for every birth!

    It is a picture journel so a family member or parent needs to be prepared to take pictures for every page on the day the child is born. Child love to read or had this book read to them as a toddler or young child. Be sure to purchase the picture Journel book (not the other storybook) Makes a special keepsake!

    Great Baby Gift!

    I bought this for my newborn niece as a special book to commemorate her special day. It is a very sweet, charming book that she will cherish for years to come. Her big sister will soon be able to read the story to her, which is pretty neat. I would recommend this book and author to anyone who is looking for a gift for any child.

    Tear-jerker

    Hard to get through this one without crying! Conveys a very "You are special" message through its descriptions of all the animals, plants and people that welcomed your child into the world as they were born.

    I cried the first time I read this book after the birth of my first child. I buy it often for the birth of people's children. Talks about how glad the earth is to have the new baby here. Adorable!

    Tell Someone Their Special

    This book is sweet and poignant. While it is a wonderful work to read to children, it need not be limited to newborns or small children. It makes a nice gift for adult friends, just to say, "You're Special". The prose and the pictures are artistically paired. I have given this book as a gift on many occasions and recommended it to friends often.

    This is a must have for every new parent! As you read it to your little one, you can really convey to them how important they are. It is so heartwarming while at the same time it teaches several science lessons. I love to give it as a baby shower gift.

    A weird book for hippies

    I bought this book online because it got such good reviews and the concept seemed really nice. But when I received it I found it to be VERY WEIRD! I returned it. I don't want to read my daughter a story about her "slithering out of the birth canal." It was repulsive. A good idea poorly executed in my opinion.
