A perfect gift for baby showers! Great for new big brother and sisters!

A baby is born. From the first moments of her life, she is able to breathe, open her eyes, and gaze at her mother’s face. Soon she will nurse, suck her thumb, and sleep. With text as tender as a newborn’s cheek, Robie H. Harris tells a story to children about the day they were born, describing how loud they cried and how they could see light, hear sounds, and even sneeze. Together with Michael Emberley’s extraordinary illustrations - each one carefully observed and deeply moving - HAPPY BIRTH DAY! shows children how very much they were loved right from the start.

In this new paperback edition, HAPPY BIRTH DAY! includes an illustrated bookplate that lets parents or gift givers fill in the details of a special baby’s birth.
