“And So You Were Born” is a Bahá’í-inspired children’s book (with an accompanying interactive version in the iTunes App Store) which features colorful, whimsical illustrations as the reader learns of the great love that exists for them – from God’s love before and after birth, to love of family and friends – and about life’s purpose of spreading love to all as we unite in our diversities.
Beginning with a dedication page allowing for personalization (including space for a photograph, as well as the gift-giver’s name, the child’s name and date of gift), “And So You Were Born” ends with short writings from major faith traditions, notable world figures and various cultures on the themes of love and a purpose-driven life.
And So You Were Born is winner of a 2014 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award in the category of Religion/Spirituality. The Awards – which are handed to publishers large and small from around the world – are designed to bring increased recognition to the year’s best children’s books, chosen for their commitment to children, literacy and life-long reading.
