Praise for On the Night You Were Born

Praise for On the Night You Were Born:

“Readers have the option of simply listening to Orlagh Cassidy’s warm voice, or to play a read-along version, which may appeal to developing readers. There is also a bonus track of Tillman herself reading the story. This is a lovely choice to share at bedtime and naptime.” – Parents’ Choice Awards, Parents’ Choice Recommended

“This is one of those rare baby books that make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy.”—Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Many parents will welcome this opportunity to tell their children how special and loved they are.”—Booklist

“Rhyming text extols and celebrates the uniqueness of a newborn.”—School Library Journal

Praise for It’s Time to Sleep, My Love:

“As in On the Night You Were Born, the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery . . . Culminating in a final scene of a sleeping child in a floating bed under a watchful moon, this gentle, tender offering will buoy children with its strong messages of safety and love.”—Booklist

“A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike.”—Kirkus Reviews
