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!
