This book is a lovely one to read with children. It's also a wonderful reminder of the honor and joy of welcoming babies.
As an early childhood education teacher I found this book to be fascinating. It is a great way to bring the cultures, traditions and religions of all children and families into the classroom without going overboard. The text is simple enough for very young children, but fascinating enough to keep the older children's attention. I would recommend this book to anyone.
