On the Night You Were Born
This is a special book in our family- each of my sons have their very own copy with a poem written by their Gran in the inside cover telling them all about the "night they were born." They love the words, how special the book makes them feel, and hearing their name over and over again when we are prompted to say it.
These illustrations are bright and stunning. They really would make lovely framed prints for a nursery or play room; they are that unique and gorgeous!
Kids are curious for years about the story of how they came to be in their parents' lives and in their families. This is a fantastic, neutral book that simply celebrates the birth of any child listening to the story. There is plenty of room to fill in and talk about the special details of a specific child or family. Just like those first cries of a newborn are to parents, it is music to a child's ears to hear that the world rejoiced when they were born.
