Customer Reviews of The Wonder of You: A Book for Celebrating Baby's First Year

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Beautiful This is definatly a baby book that beats out all others! the illustrations in this book can no be comapred to! I find just looking at this book very relaxing and calming, its everything you could hope to pass along to yoru child when he or she grows up. it has all the traditional things to fill in along with some others like the popular music, or who was the president. etc the book that goes along with it "on the night you were born" is also a great find for any new parents! i've enjoyed these both very much.

Read from the Book

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.
