Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this heartwarming picture book, a girl asks her grandmother to tell her a story. Beginning with "This story- is about you," Grandma describes how the child's parents and various family members waited expectantly for her arrival. Daddy wrote a song, Great-aunt Sally knitted a sweater, Mama's belly grew, and everyone helped prepare the nursery. Cousins all around the country eagerly awaited the news, and everyone came by train, bus, car, and plane to see this tiny new relative, whom they instantly loved. The child asks, "Why did you love me? You didn't even know me yet?" and Grandma responds, "That's just the way it is with families." All children need to hear these words, and adults can help them to recognize that they are special through books like this one. The text is gentle and simply worded, and the illustrations are attractive and colorful, with scrapbooklike pictures showing various family members. A good choice for group sharing and one-on-one readings with a caring adult.-Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Here's a story that most children love to hear over and over: snuggled together in a cozy chair, a grandma tells her granddaughter once again about how much of a fuss everyone in the family made while waiting for her to be born. Stephenson depicts a cast of open-faced, beaming parents and relatives painting and furnishing the bedroom, phoning each other with updates, bringing gifts-and then gathering from all over the country to cluster around the newborn's crib: "They came by bus, they came by train, they came by plane, they came by car . . . just to see you." When the young listener leadingly asks why everyone loved her so much, Grandma replies, "Why? I don't know. That's just the way it is with families." Occupying a middle ground between Robie Harris's almost clinical Happy Birth Day (1996) and Debra Frasier's abstract On the Day You Were Born (1991), this offers one version of a universal experience in tones of unalloyed joy.
