The Wonder That Is You by Glenys Nellist

The Wonder That Is YouABOUT THE BOOK

A heartwarming book that beautifully captures the universal love and joy parents feel as they celebrate the arrival of their new child. A perfect gift for baby showers, baptisms, adoptions, birthdays, or any time you want to tell your little one how much they are loved.

Every parent dreams of embracing their new child. When that dream comes true, it’s as if all of creation rejoices with them. In the tradition of Nancy Tillman’s On The Night You Were Born and Emily Winfield Martin’s The Wonderful Things You Will Be comes The Wonder That Is You by critically-acclaimed author Glenys Nellist.

Something special happens when a child is in your arms as you read them this book. Something you and your little one will never, ever forget.

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. 

Wonder That Is You is:

Not only a perfect gift for new babies, but also a precious story to read aloud with big brothers and sisters in anticipation of the new arrival
A heartwarming way to tell your children or grandchildren of any age how special they are and how much that are loved
A soothing bedtime book that will have your little ones falling fast asleep in your loving arms


This is such a sweet book and it is one that both parents and children will love. The bright illustrations are perfect for grabbing a little one's attention and this edition is a board book so the sturdy pages are perfect for little fingers to grab and hold. Best of all, the words express perfectly the emotions that all parents feel when they have a new baby and the rhyming words sound like a lullaby as they are being read. My granddaughter is now six but she still likes to be reminded just how special she is in our lives.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation to write a positive review and I am voluntarily sharing my honest opinions.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I'm an author of twenty books for children, including the best-selling Twas The Evening of Christmas, The Wonder That is You, and two popular series: Love Letters from God and Snuggle Time. Here's my little story...

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England. Four long decades later, I would find myself living across the pond, married to a wonderful man, mum to four adult children and three daughters-in-law, and grandma to three bouncing boys and one gorgeous girl. And as if all that wasn’t blessing enough, I somehow became an author, despite giving up on my first book half way through.

And if you would have told me then, that this book would one day become a series, that I would begin a second series, and a third… I never would have believed you. The only possible explanation is that our great God is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or possibly imagine.
