On The Day You Were Born


The first stand out feature of this adorable picture book is that it looks at the arrival of a new baby from the father’s point of view.

A refreshing and welcome perspective from the talented Margaret Wild.

I also love how On The Day You Were Born truly embraces mindfulness.

Stopping, looking and appreciating.

On the day you were born this new father’s look again on the world with new eyes, and fresh vigour perspective …

Crickets singing, bright bushes resplendent with juicy berries, hawks and falcons circling the skies, and the glorious smell of honey from the bees. *Sigh*

Glorious images from the talented hand of Ron Brooks fill each page,

… and then that ending, oh that ending … beautiful.

This is a perfect gift for new Father’s everywhere.

Margaret Wild‘s reputation as one of Australia’s best loved authors is not with out reason. She has published over 70 picture books – wow, that’s some collection.
