“Every home should have this book. Every family should read it often.”
—Lendon Smith, M.D.(Pediatrics), Portland, OR


The Twelve Gifts of Birth is a tender, inspiring tale celebrating the innate qualities we’re all born with. For children, the message helps form within them a strong foundation of self-respect. For teens and adults, the book offers a message of healing and hope in trying times and during transitions. This richly illustrated book reminds all readers to see the dignity and goodness in themselves and others.

A wonderful, inspirational, beautifully illustrated classic, The Twelve Gifts of Birth by Charlene Costanzo offers a message of love and hope for children of all ages—and for the child in every adult. The recipient of numerous prizes and accolades—including the 1999 Glyph Best Book Award—The Twelve Gifts of Birth is a gift to be cherished, ideal for giving on birthdays, baby showers, baptisms, first communions, confirmations, and, of course, Mother’s Day.

Charlene Gorda Costanzo is an award-winning author, workshop facilitator, wife, mother of two adult daughters, and grandmother of twins. She holds a BA in Philosophy from St. Bonaventure University and an MA in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica.

Originally from New Jersey, she has resided in New York, Texas, Arizona, and Florida. During a one-year book tour to launch The Twelve Gifts of Birth, Charlene and her husband enjoyed living in an RV in forty-eight of the fifty states.
