On The Day You Were Born May 14, 2008
This is a book we give as a gift for new babies and their families. It is a beautiful book with colorful illustrations and meaningful text. It is definitely a "keepsake".
The Little One Enjoys It...Me, Not So Much Mar 27, 2008
My 1 yr old son enjoys having this read to him; however, my tongue doesn't. I find this book miserable to read. Unlike other books which tend to have more rhyme and rhythm, this one just has waaaaaaay too many adjectives and I find myself stumbling over the long sentences. Sometimes I even leave a few words out!
You may argue that it's the message that really counts (albiet this book tends to be a little mushy about it), but at the end of day, after having had my patience tried more times than I'd like to think, having to plow through this book is the last thing I want to do.
The illustrations are wonderful and my son DOES enjoy the book, and so I give it three stars for that.
Perfect birthday gift for a new baby Feb 15, 2008
This is a lovely gift for a new baby (forget the layette items, people get too many anyway!) - this and On the Night You Were Born are the books I send to all the new people I know. The sentiment in this book is perfect. In the prose-like text of this book, the little one is welcomed by the earth - the pictures are bold and fun to look at. I love it.
A Family Tradition Feb 9, 2008
This wonderful book has become a personal tradition in my family. I give a copy to the parents for each new baby born. What better way to welcome the newest additions.
Simple but deep! Jan 28, 2008
My daughter loves this book and so do I! A great book to introduce the concept that we are one with the earth and all her creatures, as well as teach about all the scientific aspects of gravity, oxygen, stars...I highly recommend it! A really great gift too!
