Topics: World Celebrates Your Birth 

On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.” Because there had never been anyone like you…ever in the world.

Heaven blew every trumpet and played every horn on the wonderful, marvelous night you were born.

Nancy Tillman (On the Night You Were Born)

On the Night You Were Born is a sweet melody as it celebrates when you were born into this world. The message throughout the book is that there is only one you and the world will never be the same now that you are here. Musical notes fill each page as the sound of your name travels through all lands. It travels across the ocean, through trees, and past farmlands. When the great news of your birth was heard the panda bears danced, the geese flew home, and the moon stayed up until the morning. The pictures are beautiful and the words are poetic. Both young and old readers will smile as they imagine how the world changed when they were born.
