Description

The trusted, New York Times best-selling author of It's Perfectly Normal presents a charming and reassuring picture book series for preschoolers.

Young children are curious about almost everything. Asking questions is one of many ways they learn about themselves and the world around them. Now, this unique series for our youngest children provides easy-to-understand facts and answers to their delightful, thoughtful, and often nonstop questions. Launching the series is WHO HAS WHAT?, a simple story following Nellie and Gus on a family outing to the beach. Humorous illustrations, conversations between the siblings, and a clear text all reassure young kids that whether they have a girl's body or a boy's, their bodies are perfectly normal, healthy, and wonderful. Authoring the series is Robie H. Harris, whose nonfiction books are known as the source for addressing kids' questions about themselves, their families, and their friends. Nadine Bernard Westcott's accurate and entertaining illustrations offer an inviting way for children to discover straightforward, fascinating information about themselves.




About the Author
Robie H. Harris says the memory of the day her second child was born inspired HI NEW BABY! "When my older child met his new baby brother, he was full of feelings--excitement and disappointment when he finally saw the baby, surprise that the new baby was so tiny, upset when the baby cried, bored when the baby slept, angry that he was no longer the baby, and proud when he realized that he could make the baby stop crying. This was another story, like HAPPY BIRTH DAY!, that my children--who are now best friends--loved hearing."
Michael Emberley says, "After carpeting my studio floor with hundreds of sketches in my struggle to capture the complex emotions of the young girl in this book, I think I finally know what must have been going on in my sister's mind on the day I was born." Michael Emberley's art for HI NEW BABY! features the same family that readers meet in HAPPY BIRTH DAY!
