Summery: On the Day You Were Born, written and illustrated by Debra Frasier, is considered a modern children’s classic. The lyric text welcomes each child to the every day miracles of planet Earth – the sun, moon, North Star, wind, rain, tides and the circle of people awaiting each child. With over one million copies in print, this book has been present for the arrival of newborns, birthdays from one to ninety one, as well as school celebrations and church events. Sometimes copies are carried to the hospital where the dedication page is stamped with the footprints of the infant, and signed by the doctors, nurses and visitors. from debrafraiser.com

I love this book. I give it to every new baby I know. I didn’t even think of bringing it to the hospital to have the baby’s footprints put in it but I will from now on.

The pictures are simple, colorful, and eye catching. The sentiment is one that should be shared with every little one on earth-welcome to the earth, we’re so glad you’re here. What a wonderful way to welcome a whole new person to the world.

If you’re looking for a baby shower gift or a birthday gift you can’t go wrong with this book. My 19 year old daughter still loves to hear this book. It’s a long lasting love letter to the children in your life.
