Review quote

-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 Journalshow more
