MY REVIEW

What a beautiful book! The book begins with the words, "On the day you were born", and it expresses how much a little baby is loved right from the start. The story then journeys to several other countries where other precious babies were born on the same day.

Different names, different family traditions and cultures, but each baby has something in common. Each little one is loved, cherished and wanted, and a beautiful expression of a parent's love.

I look forward to sharing this great book with my grandchildren.
