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

'My daddy said, On the day you were born, I wrapped you up warm and took you for a walk to see the world . . .

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

A celebration of the glories of existence, the world seen afresh on the birth of a new baby.
