Praise for It’s Time to Sleep, My Love:

“As in On the Night You Were Born, the words directly address a young listener with comforting, fanciful imagery . . .

“A luxuriant bedtime retreat for children and parents alike.”—Kirkus Reviews

My friends used another Nancy Tillman book (Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You) as a guestbook at my shower, so I bought this baby book to accompany it.

This is such a wonderful keepsake for any new parents! I stumbled upon this at a local bookstore after having read the companion book "On The Night You Were Born." It's basically a ready-made scrapbook with pages to be filled in for all of baby's firsts, as well as info about the world baby came into, like the cost of milk, gasoline, president, etc. One of my favorite pages is the "Glad You/Mad You" page, where the parent can fill in their likes/grievances :). If you're looking for a sweet gift that'll induce tears, this is it.

Fantastic. Exactly what we were looking for. The illustrations are great, the prompts are meaningful, and there is room for flexibility and creative interpretation. It doesn't pigeon hole you into a certain family structure but still has some traditional elements to it. Would definitely recommend this baby book.

Families aren't just for husband and wife anymore...the lack of gender pronouns of parents or grand-parents, spaces for recording adoption or other celebrations, and cute but gender neutral pictures and themes make this one of the best baby books around. This book also makes no assumptions about how the child made it into a family's life, so it is really inclusive for all families. I haven't read the book which this baby book is based on but, this stands well on its own.

I bought this for myself and think it would be the perfect baby shower gift! This book is full of Nancy Tillman's gorgeous works of art, making it a keepsake I'll treasure forever. It includes a growth chart with the CUTEST picture of animals standing on each others' heads (polar bear, Canadian goose, duck, duckling, cardinal, frog, and ladybug) and a note card in a pouch on the inside of the book that you can write a letter to your child within. The book contains places to record:

How you felt about baby when you heard he/she was coming
Baby shower details
Your first thoughts about baby
Bringing baby home
Details about baby and his/her firsts
Dreams you have for your baby
Family tree
Dedication/Christening/Special Service information
What the world that baby came into is like (president, hot toys, popular things)
Health record
Personality details
Memories of holidays, travels, birthdays

This memory book is everything I could hope for and the nicest one I've ever seen! Definitely worth buying. :)

i love the book, "on the night you were born" so i just had to have this for my second son's baby book. i love the art and quotes throughout it. it's written so that it can be used for biological or adopted children, with wording like, "from the moment we knew you were coming..." and "where we were when we heard you would at last be ours..." topics include: baby shower, sonogram/1st photo page, 1st thoughts about baby, adventures in bringing baby home, baby name/stats page, family tree, firsts, favorites, growth chart, and lots more. plenty of room to add pictures. and it all ends with the words "YOU ARE LOVED." on the last page. a great memory book for boys or girls. easy to add to and adapt to your personal story.

I got this book as a gift at my baby shower, and it has been so much fun filling it out! There are lots of prompts to get you thinking about what to write ("When we first heard you would be ours..." or "You delight us because..."), but some of them can be a little cheesy sounding. I just pasted photos over the prompts that I didn't like. :) There is lots of space to add pictures and other mementos, though I do wish there was the option to add more photo pages (we take SOOOO many photos!) or expand the book somehow.

What I really appreciate about this book is how inclusive it is. It is worded appropriately for babies born to their parents as well as for babies adopted by their parents. It doesn't assume a "mom and dad" scenario, so it's appropriate for GLBT families as well. And it doesn't have any religious overtones or Bible verses that bug me in other books.

Overall, a great scrapbook for baby's first year!

I love this baby book. I bought it as a companion to "On the Night you Were Born." It has a beautiful story and wonderful pictures. My only complaint is that I wish there was more space for "keepsakes."
