Audiobook review: On the Night You Were Born

For a long time, I've been a fan of the kids' book- On the Night You Were Born. So when I found out that Macmillan Audio was releasing a book/CD set, I was happy to get the chance to do a review. In case you haven't had the pleasure of reading this book before, here's a bit about it, from the Macmillan website:

On the night you were born, the whole world came alive with thanksgiving. The moon stayed up till morning. The geese flew home to celebrate. Polar bears danced.
On the night you were born you brought wonder and magic to the world. Here is a book that celebrates you. It is meant to be carried wherever life takes you, over all the roads, through all the years.
This debut picture book by Nancy Tillman has touched the hearts of readers of all ages, from the youngest readers, to new mothers, to grandparents. A New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestselling book, On the Night You Were Born is sure to be a beloved addition to family libraries.
On the Night You Were Born has lovely words and gorgeous pictures, and is a story that will make your child know that he or she is very special indeed. The audio CD really brings the book to life, as it is read beautifully by Orlagh Cassidy. It's perfect for bedtime, or anytime that you want to sit and snuggle with your kids as you look at the book.

This paperback/CD set is available now from Macmillan Audio.
