On the Day You Were Born by Sophie Piper, Lois Rock

This picture book expresses all the hopes, dreams and wishes that a grown-up feels for a newborn child. It is written as speaking to the child when they are a little older, and can be given as a constant reminder to the child that, from the very beginning, they have been loved and cherished.
