Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

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."
Because there had never
been anyone like you . . .
ever in the world.

Praise for The Wonder of You

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

Praise for On the Night You Were Born:

“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
