Publishers Weekly, 2002-06-03 Yeah, Baby! "On the day you were born the Earth turned, the Moon pulled, the Sun flared, and, then, with a push, you slipped out of the dark quiet where suddenly you could hear... ...a circle of people singing with voices familiar and clear." The On the Day You Were Born Gift Set by Debra Frasier contains a copy of her popular picture book and a 100% cotton flannel welcoming blanket (approximately 30'' x 40'') decorated with the same birds and stars seen in the book. The pair comes packaged in a sizeable gift box. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 2001-04-02 Inspired by her bestselling book of the same name, On the Day You Were Born: A Photo Journal by Debra Frasier supplies a sturdy cardboard frame on each of its eight spreads. The photographs then personalize and add meaning to the calming text, "On the day you were born a circle of people welcomed you with voices familiar and clear." On this page, in addition to the photo frame, a prompt asks youngsters (and parents) to write down the "people who welcomed you," while the facing illustration shows a woman holding a baby as friends and family gently dance around her.

Publishers Weekly, 1991-03-22 Offering a curious amalgam of the mystical and the scientific, Frasier's first picture book is a paean to nature and to birth. The poetic text explains how the sun, moon, ocean tides, rain, trees, air, animals and people of the world work together to create a welcoming setting for a baby's arrival. Young readers will find Frasier's rhythmic passages soothing, if not always entirely comprehensible: ``On the day you were born the Moon pulled on the ocean below, and, wave by wave, a rising tide washed the beaches clean for your footprints. . . .'' The volume concludes with notes on the natural and technical phenomena mentioned in the text, including animal migration, the rotation of the earth, gravity, stellar constellations and precipitation. Illustrating this unusual book, Frasier's paper collages feature a mostly muted palette of earth tones that is somewhat lacking in child appeal. Though it might spark interesting discussions with an older child, this work will be over the heads of little ones. All ages. (Mar.)
