This picture book lyrically describes how cultures around the world welcome the birth of a daughter.
"In stately, rhythmic cadences, with words set down in several fonts accompanied by hyperrealistic images, Kroll and Rowe make a mighty song of welcome to newly born girls: "She is born, born, BORN! . . . and Earth will never be the same. She'll be "hugged into belonging" or welcomed with pink balloons; she'll be given special gifts, such as a dream catcher; and she'll grow strong on cornbread or rice cakes. " -- Booklist
