On the Night You Were Born

Spring 2013 CD with Book
Ages: 1 - 4 yrs.
Producer: Macmillan Audio
CD Price: $12.99

On the Night You Were Born is an audiobook version of Nancy Tillman's bestselling lullaby-like story. The text is a loving and gentle meditation on how much a child is loved by the world, and Tillman's illustrations are both realistic and whimsical.

This set contains a paperback picture book along with a three-track CD. Readers have the option of simply listening to Orlagh Cassidy's warm voice, or to play the read-along version, which may appeal to developing readers. There is also a bonus track of Tillman herself reading the story. This is a lovely choice to share at bedtime and naptime.
