From the author of the beloved classic Old Turtle comes a heartfelt letter to all
newborns, a warm and wise welcome to the world.
Inspired by the birth of his first grandchild, Douglas Wood offers this welcome—moving from “the
silver hems of the clouds” to the “treasures of the soul,”—to any Little One newly arrived in the
world, and to the family who loves them. These are words to be kept and returned to again and
again, treasured for a lifetime, and are stunningly paired with the images of gifted photog-
rapher Katharina Wood, Douglas's own daughter-in-law.
