Discover celebrations of life from every continent, under the same sparkling stars, in this reassuring tribute to the all encompassing embrace of God's love.

Review
This view of babies in different parts of the world and the ways in which their mothers love them and care for them offers a thoughtful, soothing text and warmly rendered illustrations full of culturally specific details.... This reassuring and quietly powerful book reminds readers in a gentle way that they have much in common with other children around the world. (Kirkus Reviews, March 2010)

Review
"This book makes those who look through its pages aware that, in spite of whatever differences children have, the deep love of family is something that children everywhere have in common. It's a good place to start in building global friendships and that's why this book is important."---Tony Campolo, Eastern University -- Tony Campolo
