ON THE NIGHT YOU WERE BORN by Nancy Tillman

A few words about this wonderful bedtime story...

Published in 2006, On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman wasn't available for my boys. We read Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and Pat Hancock at least a thousand times and I will always have precious memories attached to the story as well as to our bedtime ritual.

But times change and authors give birth to new stories everyday and every now and again a simply genius piece of art comes to life. On the Night You Were Born is a beautiful bedtime story that fosters a sense of joy that is unmatched.

The gorgeous rhythm identifies for the child their unique existence in the world. ..."Life will never be the same. Because there had never been anyone like you...ever in the world." What a fabulous message to share with a child.

Inside, the illustrations are beautiful.
Every child deserves to be special and this book is about the best beginning I could imagine. "Heaven blew every trumpet and played every horn on the wonderful, marvelous night you were born."
