About the Author:

William Sears, one of America's most renowned pediatricians, received his pediatric training at Harvard Medical School's Children's Hospital and Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. He has practiced pediatrics for nearly three decades and currently teaches at the University of Southern California School of Medicine. Martha Sears is a registered nurse, certified childbirth educator, and breastfeeding consultant. Together the Searses have authored many books on parenting, childcare, and nutrition, including The Baby Book, The Family Nutrition Book, The Discipline Book, and The Breastfeeding Book. They regularly contribute articles to both Parenting and Baby Talk magazines. The Searses are the parents of eight children and live in Capistrano Beach, California.
Christie Watts Kelly earned a degree in elementary education from the University of Memphis and cofounded the Memphis chapter of Attachment Parenting International. Along with the other books in the Sears Children's Library, she coauthored two adult titles, New Families: New Finances and The Single Parents's Money Guide.
Renee Andriani is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and also illustrates magazines and greeting cards. She lives in Leawood, Kansas, with her husband and three children.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Appealing picture books written by attachment-parenting advocates. In the first title, the anticipation of a baby is shown as an opportunity for family members to love and support one another. The text, addressed to an older sibling, describes both the changes that the family prepares for and the ways that the baby, growing inside the mother's uterus, might make her feel: hungry, thirsty, and tired. Older brothers and sisters are encouraged to see themselves as competent to contribute at this time. What Baby Needs is a warm look at how life in the family changes to accommodate the needs of a newborn, and the care an infant requires. Both texts are prefaced by notes for adults on what kind of information and experiences might be helpful or appropriate to share with a child. In addition, sets of text bars throughout give parents and youngsters the opportunity to talk more about the issues raised by the simpler text of the books. In each book, the lighthearted, full-color cartoons bring some welcome new images to baby books: breastfeeding, babywearing (including both a dad and a mom with an infant in a baby sling), and the newborn snoozing near the parents' bed in an adjacent co-sleeper. Final pages in both volumes provide interested adults with notes on attachment parenting, including its key components (birth bonding, breastfeeding, babywearing, co-sleeping, and belief in the language value of a baby's cry).
