I gave this book to my daughter Christmas of 2011. At the time, she was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at age 30. I was led to this book because it said so many things about her birth and life I felt. I also felt I would not share another Christmas with her on this earth. This is the anniversary of her death. She died on Sept.8, 2012. I felt my heart stop beating the moment hers did. Before she died, she told me how much she loved this simple book, especially the part about my love finding her wherever she would go. I reminded her of that when I held her hand in the hospital as she took her last breath. This book speaks volumes to the love a mother has for her child.

I've always loved "On the Night You Were Born" as a baby gift, and the board book edition seemed perfect. But I was deeply disappointed -- and angry, too -- when I received it, to learn that this edition is missing the first page and several of the last pages. To some extent, some pages have been incorporated into the shortened text. But there is nothing in the Amazon description to indicate that this is an abridged edition -- and why abridge such a short (and ultimately charming) book? I felt cheated, and returned it.

While I was pregnant my husband and I had a tradition going in which he would read a book every Tues/Thurs to my belly since he was across the country for work, so that the baby would become familiar with his voice. So when our baby was born 6 weeks early and had to spend some time in the NICU my husband made sure to read to him (in person of course) on the night after he was born and this was the book I had chosen for that moment and I have absolutely no regrets doing so! It was truly a special moment watching my husband read this to our baby in the NICU.

Ultimately this was a very wonderful book. So very sweet and memorable in telling a story to your child of how very special and loved he or she is. The artwork in this book flows beautifully throughout. I will most likely buy a hard copy of this book rather than just having it just on my kindle. Its truly a book we will keep with us for years to come.

When I was pregnant, this book kept popping up on my recommendations. I didn't know the book, so the next time we were in a bookstore, I read it and thought to myself "This is WAY too sappy - why is it so popular?" The answer: apparently hormones, because as soon as we got home from the hospital, I NEEDED this book, STAT. Dancing polar bears to celebrate my son's birth? YES, I NEED THAT! Of course the wind was whispering his name on the night of his birth - I just didn't hear it because I was a little busy. WHERE CAN I GET MORE OF THIS? Hence, my word of warning to other post-partumy moms: Buy this one, cry your eyes out, and then DON'T buy every other book by Nancy Tillman. I bought four and this is the only one that we still read at 11 months - the other three are going into the donation box because they truly are way too sappy in a "special snowflake" way that nauseates me. But this book...it hits the perfect balance that your child is celebrated and unique without going overboard. And the illustrations are lovely. To be fair, the illustrations of all four Nancy Tillman books we own are lovely, but we don't need to own four of them. This one is the keeper.

I have bought this book as a part of every baby gift I have given for the past few years. The day the baby is born, I write their full name, time and place of birth on the inside of it. My friend also stamped her son's foot on the inside of it.

There is something special about this book that portrays the way that people feel about their children entering the world. As an aunt and Godmother, I get this overwhelming feeling so it must be 1,000 times stronger for parents.

It's a wonderful book for expecting parents, but also for parents who's children are grown and entering different stages of life (college, marriage or child-raising of their own).

We buy this as a gift for the parents with the intention of every person who took part in the care of the momma to be write a note to the baby about their experience while caring for the mom and baby......it was such a big hit with my first grandchild that now every mom to be gets one and they love it. They go back year after year and read the notes and see the pictures we put in the front and back of the book. The nurses and doctors all always want to be part of the story and now we have grandchild number two, with the same group of nurses and doctors and they even asked where the book was!!! How Cool. It will be great when our grandkids can read and look back on these memories!!!

This book is amazing in every way, but one thing that is particularly noteworthy to me is THE WAY IT IS WRITTEN- the WORD CHOICE AND RHYTHM- are PHENOMENALLY SOOTHING. We own tons of popular bedtime story books and this book is unique in that it ALWAYS, without fail, CALMS our 14 month old son (even when he's in a strange place and really upset, not wanting to fall asleep in his pack-n-play). I have yet to come across another book with the same careful selection in word choice, timing and rhythm. As if this weren't enough of a reason to own this book, the content and illustrations are out of this world. This book is in a class all its own- for our household, it's a staple item. All of the books authored by Nancy Tillman (watch out, some books she only illustrates and the content/writing is disappointing compared to the books she authors) are amazing and soothing, but this one is by far the very best. (we own them all- even the ones she illustrated).
