Each child is a darling. The birth of a child is a joyous event. Nancy Tillman expresses this sentiment beautifully in On the Night You Were Born.
In this sweet tale, nature joins in the celebration of a darling child’s birth. Everyone and everything are giddy with happiness. The news of the newborn's birth quickly spreads around the world and beyond. The wind and the rain rapidly distribute the news. Gentle raindrops and breezes happily whisper the baby’s name.
The wonderful news of the new and unique child’s name reaches the Arctic. The white, roly-poly Polar Bears hear of the baby's birth. They stand on their hind legs and dance with abandonment until dawn. Their romp applauds the Earth’s good fortune to have this new individual. A darling new child is born!
The moon is smiling! It is happy for the Earth’s good fortune. The moon smiles down on the darling child wrapped in warm blankets. The heavenly body is so happy, and it stays up until the next morning.
The glorious news of this unique and special child reaches the heavens. Heaven blows every trumpet and horn to herald the arrival. A more royal welcome will never play again. Musical notes float in the air to the sweet child’s ears.
Nancy Tillman creates a wonderful bedtime story to share with the sweet, unique child in your life. On the Night You Were Born’s illustrations are as bright and colorful as the text. The moon shines its beautiful smile on the baby, polar bears, ducks, ladybug and all the others.
Share On the Night You Were Born with the beautiful child in your life. The picture book is a great confidence builder. Imagine news of the birth reaching the far north and Polar Bears stopping their activities to dance until dawn because of the child's birth. A baby so special, a little bird patiently sits on the windowsill just to witness the child's first smile.
