When You Were Born
With poetic language and magnificent, deeply moving paintings, this beautiful book preserves the sense of awe inspired when a baby is born. When you were born you came quietly, and with eyes deep as an ocean you looked at me . . . A new baby is born and as family, friends, and neighbors gather to share the joy, they emerge changed. Their world is redefined as they take a moment to remember the past, imagine the future, and marvel at the tiny miracle before them.
In poetry as soothing as a lullaby, Dianna Hutts Aston evokes the sense of reverence that surrounds a newborn like enfolding arms. And in radiant, Chagall-like paintings, unlike any he's published before, Coretta Scott King Award-winning artist E. B. Lewis captures a feeling of wonder that will resonate with anyone who has gazed into the eyes of a newborn child.
