Description

When the world
Was waiting for you,
The air was bright,
The sun seemed new…


From readying the baby's crib to the very first visit from friends and family, When the World Was Waiting for You is a lyrical celebration of all the events surrounding a birth. Soothing, tender verse describes the joyful steps of welcoming baby to the family. Anna Currey's gentle illustrations of an adorable rabbit household perfectly complement the warmth of the text.

An ideal choice for baby showers, expectant parents, young children curious about their birth, and those who are about to welcome a new little sibling!




About the Author
Gillian Shields is the author of Immortal, Betrayal, and Eternal, the first books about the sisterhood of the Mystic Way, as well as many other books for young readers. She spent her childhood roaming over the Yorkshire moors and dreaming of the Bronte sisters. After studying in Cambridge, London, and Paris, she became a teacher. She has taught in a girls' boarding school and also in a drama school where it was rumored that the ghost of a young girl could be heard crying in the night. Gillian was inspired to write this series in celebration of the power of first love, the strength of female friendship, and the haunting mystery of the past.

Anna Currey is the author and illustrator of several books, including "The Christmas Unicorn" and "Truffle's Christmas". She also illustrated "One Ted Falls Out of Bed", written by Julia Donaldson; "The Macmillan Book of Nursery Rhymes"; and "When the World Is Ready for Bed" and "When the World Was Waiting for You", both written by Gillian Shields.
