Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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)

Debra Frasier
On the Day You Were Born has been welcoming children to our miraculous planet for ten years. This astonishes me. It has been a great honor to be a part of so many children's lives.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Inspired by her bestselling book of the same name, On the Day You Were Born: A Photo Journal by Debra Frasier supplies a sturdy cardboard frame on each of its eight spreads. The photographs then personalize and add meaning to the calming text, "On the day you were born a circle of people welcomed you with voices familiar and clear." On this page, in addition to the photo frame, a prompt asks youngsters (and parents) to write down the "people who welcomed you," while the facing illustration shows a woman holding a baby as friends and family gently dance around her.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 6Debra Frasier's book comes alive with 3-D animation and the sights and sounds of the Minnesota Orchestra.
Alternative Family Magazine
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.

    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!

    One of the best!

    This is one of those great books that you have to own and read to your child. It brings back all the wonderful feelings you had when you gave birth to your child. The artwork is amazing and the information in the back is interesting for adults too! This is a must own!!
