On the Day You Were Born

Margaret Wild, Ron Brooks

My daddy said, On the say you were born, I put you back in your mother’s arms, and that night we were the world.

An old bear tells a young bear how his father introduced him to the world, and the young bear does the same for his own child.

This beautiful picture book from the acclaimed partnership of Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks is a glorious celebration of family and new life.


This sweet and gentle book will give you both goosebumps and a warm glow in your stomach. It will sing to you of a father’s love, and the wonder and elation that the birth of a child can bring. It will carry you through nature’s wonderland and paint images of a busy, radiant world, before lulling you with serene skies or a tranquil, moonlit night.

On the Day You Were Born is a celebration of life and a beautiful introduction to our magnificent world by two of our most esteemed picture-book makers. This is the perfect gift to welcome a new baby, and for children ages 2 and up.
