When the first child in a family turns 2 or 3 years old, many families start to plan for a second child. Soon the "big kid" has a lot of questions: Where is the baby? Can it hear me? When will the baby finally come? What does the baby play with? What does it like and not like? Why does it cry all the time? In addition to these questions about the newborn come the older child's natural feelings of being dethroned: What is life like with a younger sibling? The subject of reproduction is clearly explained for very young children with sensitive, lovely illustrations.

The Author

The illustrator and author Angela Weinhold was born in Geesthacht, Germany in 1955. She studied visual communication in Essen, focusing on book illustration. She has been a freelance illustrator of children's, youth, and school books for more than 20 years.

She has written numerous books in the WWW series.

The Illustrator

Clara Suetens was born in Tienen, Belgium. Her parents, especially her creative father, supported her early-discovered artistic vein and supplied her with books and materials. Instead of turning her hobby into a profession, she studied sociology and political philosophy. She gave up her scientific career after the birth of her two sons in favor of art, and studied graphic design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Today she illustrates children's books and teaches art history, typography and graphics at the Academy.
