The earth celebrates the birth of a newborn baby. Each child is special and this book stresses and invites the baby to join them.
It is also a reminder and introduction for the baby to the wonderful and magical world we live in.
A beautiful and loving book. Also a "Parents' Choice Award" winner! Displays the way the natural world all works together to welcome each new birth. A "warm fuzzy!"
This is one of the best books I had for my children.
From the insert: On the eve of your birth, word of your coming passed from animal to animal...and the marvelous news migrated worldwide.
Come across our round planet as the moon pulls, the tides rise, the rain falls, and then a baby is born. Join in Debra Frasier's celebration of our natural world as she extends a loving welcome to each member of our human family...including you!
This is a beautiful book. It's my favorite book to give as a baby gift. I cried the first time I read it, when I was pregnant with my son. It celebrates the arrival of a new human to this earth and recognizes our connection to creation and to each other.
A spiritual, but non-sectarian, celebration of earth's newest resident - baby. "Welcome to the spinning world" ... "Welcome to the green Earth" ... "We are so glad you've come!"
The book is sweet but it doesn't keep my three year old granddaughters attention very well. She would much rather look at the pictures and then would like a different story. The pictures are OK, the are not beautiful or breath taking but do fit the story well. Maybe she is too young for it? This book tells a child in no uncertain terms that his or her birth was a celebration--a cosmic event that changed the world for the better. Although it has some New Age aspects to it, it transcends any religion or dogma, and is, quite simply, completely beautiful, but again I wasn't too crazy about the pictures. My copy did not come with the CD.
