About the Author
Nancy Raines Day made a wish on pennies in a wishing well to become a writer, and ten years later, her first picture book came out. She and her husband live on an island, where she thinks up ideas while walking on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Baby's Firsts is her ninth picture book. Michael Emberley has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1979 and is perhaps best known as the illustrator of Robie H. Harris's books on human sexuality: It's Perfectly Normal, It's So Amazing, and It's Not the Stork. He has a sister and father (Rebecca and Ed) who also make children's books, and a wife (Marie-Louise), who also writes and illustrates children's books. www.michaelemberley.com
