On the night you were born, you brought wonder and magic to the world. The moon stayed up till morning. Polar bears danced. Here is a book that celebrates the one and only ever you! Now available in its entirety in board book format, Nancy Tillman’s masterpiece is perfect for acknowledging the special people in our lives that they are loved.
Sweet and calming, this book is perfect for reading together while snuggling before bed. When we’ve finished, my toddler likes to hear the story of the day she was born (usually multiple times). While its narrative style isn’t my favorite, it’s great for creating an opportunity to express my love for my rambunctious three-year-old.
