Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The birth of a baby—"the one and only ever you"—causes jubilation throughout creation in this quietly celebratory picture book from newcomer Tillman. Polar bears dance, giraffes weave to the sound of brass horns, and "the moon smiled with such wonder/ that the stars peeked in to see you/ and the night wind whispered,/ 'Life will never be the same.' " Tillman successfully sidesteps the soft-focus sappiness that can accompany this genre. Her writing has the authenticity of whispered conversation; occasionally, she pauses in her exaltations of the baby to address the subject directly: "I think I'll count to three so you can wiggle your toes for me." Her strong, assured paintings truly set this book apart. The pictures subtly radiate golden glints of moonlight, and her almost sculptural rendering style gives her characters a hefty physicality that counterbalances the ethereal sentiments being expressed. Although one suspects that grown-ups will be most taken with the topic and treatment, this is one of those rare baby books that should make both skeptics and sentimentalists of all ages happy. All ages. (Oct.)

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Rhyming text extols and celebrates the uniqueness of a newborn. "Because there had never been anyone like you…ever in the world." As the news of the birth travels, creatures around the world celebrate. "When the polar bears heard, they danced until dawn." "…the geese flew home." "Heaven blew every trumpet…." The text sits on white pages opposite large, richly colored illustrations. The moon appears in all of the paintings—as reassuring as the text's sentiment. Golden musical notes float across the sky as white polar bears dance and giraffes sway to the sounds of the moon's saxophone. The dark blue night skies make a beautiful and dramatic setting for this special night. The painterly art and poetic quality of the text make this an attractive book. Parents and grandparents are most likely to appreciate it, but they will undoubtedly want to share it with a child.—Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH

5.0 out of 5 stars The night after, the night he was born.
By Laura on March 24, 2015
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Printing error
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 5, 2018
This is a lovely story however there is a printing error where the first two pages are repeated. Would be most disappointed if this had been bought as a gift. It’s for my son and I can’t be bothered with the hassle of sending it back.
