IN THIS LYRICAL, RHYMING CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOK, a mother's joy knows no bounds as she welcomes her much-anticipated and loved child into the world, even as all of creation celebrates with her. Author Glenys Nellist exuberantly and eloquently captures a mother's awe and gratitude at receiving so great a gift: 'It felt as if the world stood still / The day my dream came true. / And all creation paused to see / The wonder that is you. / It seemed to me that oceans surged / And shouted out your name, / And everyone around me knew / I'd never be the same.' Illustrator Aurelie Blanz's vivid, energetic pictures capture the buoyant life-affirming atmosphere of Nellist's poetry. Myriad creatures -- deer, butterflies, an owl, rabbits, a whale, fish, a frog, geese, a kitten, and more -- look at the newborn in amazement. Flowers, the moon, trees, stars, and the breeze welcome the infant into God's astounding world. The mothers and babies that Blanz depicts reflect the diversity of God's good creation of different races, and one of the ties that binds them together -- the birth of children. The Wonder That is You is recommended as a gift, not only for the birth of a child, but also to possibly commemorate an infant's baptism.--The Christian Courier
