Format: Board book
A board book welcoming babies from a fellow who six years ago was writing about teen agers getting drunk? Well, we're all getting older, as Richard Van Camp reminds us with this lullaby for the newest earthlings. It's a charming, simple text: "The sun rises for you/The earth welcomes you/We raise our hands to you/You have made the world beautiful again", with lovely images to accompany it. I'm glad the babies are racially diverse, but it's a pity they're stock images when local babies are everywhere. Everywhere!

HASH(0xa39108a0) out of 5 stars My son's favorite book! Sept. 3 2012
By Elizabeth Rose - Published on
Format: Board book
This is a beautiful book - the photographs and the words. I love reading this book to my son (he is now 10 months old), and this was his first favorite book. He loves each picture, he smiles, laughs and touches each page. If he is crying or upset, this book never fails to calm him down. And I do not mind reading this book over and over, it is so beautifully and lovingly written. I cannot recommend this book enough!

HASH(0xa5a3a06c) out of 5 stars beautifully written with gorgeous photographs! July 29 2009
By new mom - Published on
I first found this book at the library and fell in love with it. It is written with such beautiful and loving sentiment, and my 8-mo-old son giggled and kissed at all the pages. I would love to hear the song sung. Does anyone know if the song itself is published?

My baby loves the pictures in this book. The lullaby is sentimental, after all, the babies are our future.I just wish I could find the music to the words to sing to him.

I love this book. The photography and verse are beautiful and the pictures of the families are diverse. They include multiple races and a same-sex couple.
