What happens the night that a baby is born? The moon smiles and the wind whispers the babe’s name. Bears dance, geese fly, and ladybugs stay around to say hello. Heaven rejoices when a child enters the world. But why, one might ask, all this celebration for just a baby? Because, when a baby is born, the world gains someone special – someone not quite the same as anyone else. The world is excited to see what that child is going to bring to it.

This soothing story is a great bedtime read for little ones. The rhythm of the words combine with the soft, multimedia illustrations to create a calming atmosphere. The animals and scenes depicted in the story come together to deliver the message to every child that they are unique and they are loved. No two people in this world are exactly alike. Each new baby brought into this world means a new individual who will come develop passions and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses that will be unique to them. How blessed the world is with the diversity born with each new baby.
