Item description for Before You Were Born by Nancy Carlstrom & Linda Saport...

A poetic recounting of how the birth of a child changes the lives of the parents.

Publishers Description
Before you were born

God wrote your days in a book,

and when you arrived

we wrapped you in white

and introduced you to the dawn.

What child isn't curious about those first days of life? In Before You Were Born Nancy White Carlstrom celebrates the mystery of how each child is a part of God's plan and the wonder of how a family grows and changes when a child arrives. With vibrant colors and joyful images, illustrator Linda Saport tenderly conveys the excitement and love with which parents welcome children into their lives.

This lyrical celebration of every child's life takes its inspiration from Psalm 139.

Reviews - What do customers think about Before You Were Born?

A Very Sweet Book  Sep 29, 2003
"Before You Were Born" is one of the sweetest books I have ever read. I enjoy it more everytime I read it to my children or myself. I get so caught up in the description of how this family welcomed their child. Although it differs from my experiance, I can relate to the overall feeling the book. It takes me back to the days when my children were first born. When the newness of life filled the air, and our tiny bundle consumed our hearts with love. I also love how it makes my children feel good about themselves. Its a beautiful reminder that God made them, and has a plan for them.
