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!
