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

“Suddenly there you were—a whole new person, our baby! We saw all of you from head to toe and we loved you the moment we saw you.”

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