Publisher's Summary

This tale was written to be listened to along with grandchildren (and others) at bedtime. Also great for just-in-time-for-delivery to expectant and concerned parents.

It is a story about babies waiting in heaven to be born, but a little one due to be delivered that day gets lost (or, perhaps, is just scared and goes into hiding), giving the nurse in charge a major headache, but sorted out in the end with the help of an indulgent and amused God.

Whispy clouds and cheeky babies

This was a sweet and lovely rendition of the story of "where babies come from" wonderfully written and beautifully narrated. As seen previously, the author paints the scene in such a way with his words that even though I have never been there, I can see this version of Heaven in my mind's eye perfectly and serenely.

Nativity

It was a great little story with excellent mental images. The narration was excellent and you couldn't help but image all of the little prenatal angels in the clouds. I especially enjoyed the ending.

Beautiful Story!

What a sweet sweet story!! The concept of a nursery and angels is quite darling. The way Emelle tells the tale and does the voices is incredible. The story fills you with comfort and Emelle does a great job with new characters, including someone unexpected to help the characters! Lovely tale. Highly recommend.

Cute and sweet little story

Sweet little story about a reluctant prenatal angel rich in details which help put you in the scene. This is aided by the wonderful narration which hits just the right notes and helps transport the listener to the clouds as it were.

Unreliable briefing for father-to-be

This is a charmingly read tale, no more implausible than the Stork or Gooseberry-bush traditions, like which it offers no explanation for the size of the pre-natal mum tum!

A magic tale

I listened to this tale with my granddaughter - she liked it a lot and found it quite funny but at 13 she was too grown up to enter into the spirit of the story and get immersed in it - so I guess I will have to wait for a great-grand-daughter to appear, if I live long enough.... but the tale was fun to hear
