Praise for "On the Night You Were Born" "Readers have the option of simply listening to Orlagh Cassidy's warm voice, or to play a read-along version, which may appeal to developing readers. There is also a bonus track of Tillman herself reading the story. This is a lovely choice to share at bedtime and naptime." - "Parents' Choice Awards", Parents' Choice Recommended"This is one of those rare baby books that make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy."--Publishers Weekly"A beautiful tribute to the uniqueness of every child."--Kirkus Reviews"Many parents will welcome this opportunity to tell their children how special and loved they are."--Booklist"Rhyming text extols and celebrates the uniqueness of a newborn."--School Library JournalPraise for" It's Time to Sleep, My Love: ""As in "On the Night You Were Born", the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery . . . Culminating in a final scene of a sleeping child in a floating bed under a watchful moon, this gentle, tender offering will buoy children with its strong messages of safety and love."--"Booklist""A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike."--"Kirkus Reviews"
