On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman

Lexile:    Not Rated
Pages:    32
Ages:     3-8

"On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such
wonder that the stars peeked in to see you
and the night wind whispered,
'Life will never be the same.'"

This is the most beautiful book!  I can read it again and again and never get tired of it.  The moon, the wind, the rain, and a variety of animals celebrate the uniqueness of a newborn.  "Because there had never been anyone like you…ever in the world."  The polar bears dance all night, the geese fly home, and all of Heaven blow their trumpets.  The art is amazing and the sentiments heartfelt.  This book would make a wonderful gift for a baby shower, or a special gift to a new child or grandchild with a personal note written inside.

Come to the library and check out On the Night You Were Born or click here to reserve a copy for pick-up at your favorite Lake County Public Library branch.

Peace, Love, and Reading,
Miss Laurie
