My Thoughts
Cradle you little one and discover the similarities in births around the world. This beautiful book will bring you to North America, China, the Amazon forest, Russia, the Arctic, Egypt, South Africa, India and Australia for a special trip around the world.

Each set of pages illustrate and present a new baby born on the same day but in various places from around the world. The images illustrate the text and will help your little one to see the difference between the kids born in different countries. Each special child is showed being love by his/her entourage and how special his/her birth was. The illustrations are stunning and will bring smiles in the face of your little one. My sweet little daughter, who is two, kept saying baby every time there was a new baby from a different country. She loves to pick up the book and look at the pictures every time she can put her hands on it.
