On the Day You Were Born
Author: Margaret Wild, Ron Brooks (Illustrator)
‘My daddy said, On the day you were born, I wrapped you up warm and took you for a walk to see the world . . .
‘My daddy said, On the day you were born, I put you back in your mother’s arms, and that night we were the world.’
A celebration of the glories of existence, the world seen afresh on the birth of a new baby.
