“… Lloyd-Jones’s soothing, lyrical text expresses the universal love felt by parents awaiting the arrival of a new addition to the family…The gentle rhyming verses here may invite introductory discussion of not only the Nativity, but the joyous miracle of birth anytime of year.” Publishers Weekly

“The words are a litany of celebration and praise for the miracle of birth–and especially the birth of the Christ Child born in the manger long ago… This is an absolutely gorgeous book. … Some things our hearts know, and have always known. What a divine gift this book is for us all.” Chinaberry
