Twelve Gifts of Birth and On the Day You Were Born are my staple gifts for the first newborn in the family! The parents, grandparents and other readers all love it. Once the child becomes 3 The Twelve Gifts of Birth becomes one of their favorites also. This is a CLASSIC and I hope it never goes out of print.

This is a great book for any age person. However, this would be especially good for a mother having a baby.

I read this book to my son while in utero, and I loved it so much that now I give this book to each of my friends when they become pregnant with their first child. Very inspirational, and the illustrations are poignant. You will be pleased!

I stumbled onto this beautiful book when first published and have bought many copies to give as gifts for new babies. All of the new parents have told me that they read it over and over to their precious children and love it. I'm about to head to the store for another! The photo illustrations and messages are so perfect for girls or boys.

I bought this book for my son and gave it to him on his 14th birthday in lieu of a card. I inscribed the book with a personal message to him about my joy of being his mother. He LOVED it...and if any of you have 14 year old kids, you know that's a big deal!! This book would also be a lovely gift for parents-to-be. I plan on ordering a few and saving them for shower gifts.

This book is amazing. Everyone that has children should own this book. It is extremely empowering for children and adults. I am a therapist and routinely use it in therapy.

My daughter received this book from her very special Aunt Julie as a Christening gift...my sister also found the blanket/quilt that went with it which displayed all the gifts in beautiful pastel colors. What a wonderful message it sends to everyone who reads it. Very heart-warming!!

This book is truly a gem for all ages! When you get beaten down in life, it gives you new insight into how special each indivdiual is and how truly blessed we all are at birth with 12 special gifts! It would make a wonderful birthday present for anybody.

To teach a child the gifts of being alive and being a part of something greater couldn't be more beautifully told or illustrated. I loved this book.
