Book Description

1 Jan 1980 A Read-along book
Introduce your child to the miracle of life through a loving lesson, with God as its foundation. Poetic phrases teach the stages of development in the womb with age-appropriate accuracy. Children will delight in learning what their heartbeat sounded like, when their eyelashes formed, and how their hiccups felt to Mom. Before You Were Born is more than biology, however. With carefully chosen words and simple logic, it presents the truth about life at its conception: At that moment, each child already has been formed, known, and loved by God. This important message is wrapped in a tender tale your child will want to hear again and again. Teach your child right from the start the value of life as it develops in the womb ... and continues developing beyond. Snuggle up and share this amazing story that imparts reverence, respect, and joy for what God has created.

This book has been wonderfully revised since I bought it for my own child years ago. The new illustrations are brilliantly colorful. The text is so well written. I cry every time I read it. It is my favorite gift to give expecting or new parents.
5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Life-Affirming Message 4 Dec 2012
By virginia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought a copy of this before my second youngest child was born... she's now over 30 years old. When the grandchildren started arriving, I wanted them each to have a copy of this life-affirming story, but I wasn't willing to give up my copy. I'm so very glad I could get it through Amazon.
The art is a little bizarre, but how else would one imagine the dreams of a pre-born child.

The message is timeless. "You are the incredible handiwork of God."

This is a book which I originally owned in the 1st printing. A loving account of the growth and development in the womb and the love present during this special time of anticipation. I read it over & over again to my kids, and now I have purchased it for the parents of my first grandchild.
