Little One, We Knew You’d Come

The joy and wonder and miracle of a new baby

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Eve Tharlet

A lyrical celebration of the birth of a baby. Overflowing with joy, this book evokes for children the excitement of the day they were born — sharing the love we have for our little ones even before their arrival.

Little One, We Knew You’d Come will touch new parents and children alike. Eve Tharlet’s beautiful illustrations and the lilting, lyrical text bring this beloved story vividly to life. A celebration of life and the miracle of birth. It is a classic, simple retelling of the story that can be read every day and on every child’s birthday, as well.

Makes the perfect gift for a new baby, baptism, adoption, new beginning, or special occasion.

“Little one, we knew you’d come.

We hoped. We dreamed. We watched for you.

We counted the days till you were due.

We waited. How we longed for you,                          

And the day that you were born.”
