ABOUT THIS BOOK

A perfect baby shower gift from a bestselling and beloved artist known for capturing the special moments of family life.

Where did you get those eyes so blue?
What makes the light in them sparkle and spin?
What makes your forehead so smooth and high?

The questions new parents ask as they look in amazement on their just-born child are celebrated and fancifully answered in this inspirational poem, brought for the first time to picture-book life.

George MacDonald's lovely ode to newborn babies is beautifully animated in soft colored pencil by a treasure of the children's book world, Jane Dyer. Feauturing a diverse cast of newborns, this classic, moving, and lightly spiritual poem marvels at the miracle of new life.

QUOTES

"Dyer's chubby, cherubic, multicultural babies are almost always cheerful as they tumble, roll, and float across the page. The most satisfying page for new caregivers may be the one featuring vignettes of babies cuddled by family members. This book may have the most appeal as a gift book for spiritually minded new parents."
-Kirkus

"An exultant ode to newborns."
-Publishers Weekly
