About the Book

This beautiful picture book is a celebration of our natural world that extends a loving welcome to each member of our human family.

In simple words and radiant collages, Debra Frasier celebrates the earth and extends an exuberant welcome to each member of our human family. Travel across our round planet as the moon pulls, the tides rise, the rain falls, and then a baby is born.

Accompanied by a glossary explaining such natural phenomena as gravity, tides, and migration, this unforgettable book affirms the special place each child holds in the world.

A lovely gift for such special events as birthdays and baby showers, On the Day You Were Born belongs on every child's shelf.

"Reading this picture book aloud to a child, even the most jaded among us may feel again the sheer miracle of our human existence. A+" —Entertainment Weekly

On the eve of your birth, word of your coming passed from animal to animal . . . and the marvelous news migrated worldwide.
