Publisher Comments:

“Every home should have this book. Every family should read it often.”
—Lendon Smith, M.D.(Pediatrics), Portland, OR

 

A wonderful, inspirational, beautifully illustrated classic, The Twelve Gifts of Birth by Charlene Costanzo offers a message of love and hope for children of all ages—and for the child in every adult. The recipient of numerous prizes and accolades—including the 1999 Glyph Best Book Award—The Twelve Gifts of Birth is a gift to be cherished, ideal for giving on birthdays, baby showers, baptisms, first communions, confirmations, and, of course, Mothers Day.

Synopsis:

Originally self-published, "The Twelve Gifts of Birth" has received eight awards and has sold more than 200,000 copies. Now the gorgeously illustrated gift book that celebrates the 12 qualities bestowed on every child is available just in time for Mother's Day.

Synopsis:

There is no more magical moment than when a newborn baby is laid in a mother's arms. What was for many months a dream and a mystery is now a miraculous new person at the threshold of a life filled with possibilities.

Through a tender, inspiring tale, The Twelve Gifts of Birth reveals the birthright inheritance that all children receive at this moment. Wise women, otherwise known as fairy godmothers, announce the twelve gifts in the form of blessings and show how to use them to enrich one's life.

This keepsake book encourages new parents to nurture and protect the wondrous qualities that have been bestowed on their tiny miracles. When shared with young children, this message helps form within them a strong foundation of values and self-respect. For teens and adults, this story offers healing and hope during times of diminished self-esteem and uncertain transition. It reminds all readers to see the dignity that is inherent in themselves and others.
