Absolute adorable

Every child - and adult - could benefit from the book's message that the world rejoiced when the one and only you was born.

Beautiful book!

Got it for my niece and her husband for their first baby. They loved it and can't wait to read it to child.

I love this book and I give it to all new parents.

This book is not only beautifully illustrated, but the message is lovely and timeless; it's how all parents feel about their new baby.


Ordered 3 hardbacks for gifts. I truly dont think i can give them as gifts. All 3 have personalized writing on front "critical" page. And one has large part of page torn out and missing. Ive never returned a book but think I should return all 3 of these. Cannot give as gifts. How do i return?? Thank you.

My favorite children’s book! I tear up every time I read it to my daughter ♥️ Bought this one as a g

Such a great book, beautiful story!

The most beautiful book ever

This is a beautiful book for a child of any age, as a gift or for your own children or any child you love.

Powerful message

This book's powerful message could change the way the children in the world see themselves. This is truly the bedtime stories to end all bedtime stories. When I read it to my daughter again and again, he always feels so special. Wish it could be handed out to new parents as they leave the hospital. Thank you to the author for giving us this special memory. The artwork is also beautiful! Another special title that I recommend above all other children books is Why Some Cats are Rascals ( Book 3).

This Wonderful Book Says, "I Love You."

You are a very special, unique, one of a kind child, that's the message conveyed in this wonderful book. On the night you were born, the moon smiled with wonder that the stars peeked in to see you. There are many places throughout the book to say your child's name to personalize it, to make it their very own story. It is written in the lovely rhyming verse all children love. Not once had there been such eyes, such a nose, such silly, wiggly, wonderful toes. In her 4-color illustrations, Ms. Tillman uses geese flying, ladybugs landing, and the moon up at morning to celebrate the birth of a child, it's her hope that even as children grow into adults, whenever they see these events they will be reminded of how valuable they are. The illustrations also contain musical notes floating in the sky, with small messages such as, "You are a miracle." Two giraffes look up at a star filled sky while the moon plays a saxophone surrounded by the words, Instill confidence and self esteem in your child by personalizing each page with their name. A book your child will cherish for a lifetime.

A beautiful book terrific for even an adoptive child too!

When I saw this book I thought oh, I bet this is an absolutely wonderful book for any child who receives it...but I won't be able to read it to my daughter who was "born in my heart & in another mother's tummy". With both my sister and sister-in-law are pregnant I wanted to check out this book and see if my thoughts on this book where the same as the other reviewers. Not only did I fall in love with this book, but I was also very surprised that this book also can be given to your adoptive child as well! Unlike other books this book focuses completely on your child and not on her or his birthmother. This book speaks of how special your child is, that there is no other child exactly like them and shows you how the world, moon and animals celebrated the night your child was born. The illustrations are beautiful and some even have musical notes that swirl about the page. The baby is in a basket and you never see the it's face. The words are pure poetry, speaking to the child in all of us on how special, how rare and how there is only one of each of us IN THE WHOLE WORLD! An awesome book that every child should be given and read to until they know without a doubt of how special they are! Adults too could learn much from this book! And if you are giving this book as a baby shower gift.... you have picked one of the best baby gifts out there in the world today! PS: Another wonderful book is Twelve Gifts of Birth.

Every child should be read this book

What a wonderful book! Every child needs to be read this book, slowly so the words sink in. They need to know that they are loved and special. I am a new grandma, my granddaughters are ages 3 and 4, they will be read this book over and over again. thank you Ms. Tillman
