Summaries and Reviews
The joy of life and the magic of birth is captured in this heartfelt tale with poetic text and rich illustrations about a family and a community coming together to celebrate the arrival of a newborn--remembering the past, dreaming of the future, and appreciating the present. description: Product Description: With poetic language and magnificent, deeply moving paintings, this beautiful book preserves the sense of awe inspired when a baby is born.

When you were born
you came quietly,
and with eyes deep as an ocean
you looked at me . . .

A new baby is born — and as family, friends, and neighbors gather to share the joy, they emerge changed. Their world is redefined as they take a moment to remember the past, imagine the future, and marvel at the tiny miracle before them. In poetry as soothing as a lullaby, Dianna Hutts Aston evokes the sense of reverence that surrounds a newborn like enfolding arms. And in radiant, Chagall-like paintings, unlike any he's published before, Coretta Scott King Award­winning artist E. B. Lewis captures a feeling of wonder that will resonate with anyone who has gazed into the eyes of a newborn child.
