Happy Birth Day

23 September, 2014

Happy Birth Day has some of the most realistic newborn baby illustrations I’ve seen. It is a great story, told from the parents’ perspective, to their daughter. It’s a hospital birth (with a midwife) and includes images of the baby being breastfed. It includes the baby being naked but not the adults.

It is also a good book for not depicting grandparents as gray-haired. It’s not as overt about it as “Our Granny”, but it’s there, nonetheless.

The author and illustrator also teamed up again to write the book Hi New Baby, which tells the story of a sister and the arrival of her new sibling. The girl in Hi New Baby, is the baby in Happy Birth Day. A perfect pair for a child anticipating (or dreading) the arrival of a new brother or sister.
