More About Joanna Cole & Margaret Miller

Joanna Cole Joanna Cole is the author of the popular Magic School Bus series, I'm a Big Brother, I'm a Big Sister, and many other award-winning books. In Asking About Sex & Growing Up, she provides a reassuring blend of practical guidance and scientific fact for the audience that needs it most.

I discovered in the fifth grade that I enjoyed explaining things and writing reports for school. I had a teacher who was a little like Ms. Frizzle. She loved her subject. Every week she had a child do an experiment in front of the room, and I always wanted to be that child. Grade school was very important to me maybe that's why I ended up writing books for children as an adult.

After graduating from college, I worked as an elementary-school teacher, a librarian, a children's book editor, and a writer. My first book was Cockroaches. An article in the Wall Street Journal inspired me to do some research. I discovered that there had never been a children's book written about cockroaches before. So I thought, why not? Plus, I had ample time to study that creature in my low-budget New York apartment!

Since then I have written both nonfiction and fiction books for children. In my science books, including The Magic School Bus books, I write about ideas, rather than just the facts. I try to ask a question, such as how do scientists guess what dinosaurs were like? Then I try to answer the question as I write the book.

Writing is hard work, but it's the greatest fun in the world.

Joanna Cole currently resides in the state of Connecticut.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New Baby at Your House?

Ok book not great for a younger child  Dec 1, 2007
I had a hard time finding a book to read to my daugher about her sibling on the way and finally decided to give this book a try. It is kinda outdated and has alot of words. It would be better for an older child but most of it went over the head of my 2 1/2 yr old. She likes looking at the pictures but there is not really a story to follow. If you need a book that talks about feelings and the logistics of what happens when a new baby joins your family then this book would be great. For us we just needed a book that talked about what being a big sister was and showed pictures of kids and their baby siblings
Captivates a childs interest but take note home birth Moms!  Aug 26, 2007
This book is a great way to prepare your child for a new arrival because it covers a range of emotions the child might feel (good and bad) and gives the child an idea of what a baby can and cannot do, and what the child can look forward to. I liked this book because it shows a positive image of a mother breast-feeding, which is great to prepare a kid for the new things Mom might be doing. Like other reviewers I agree that the pictures are great and captivate a young child's interest. However, the one thing that did not suit our particular situation was the fact that it describes how Mom will go to the hospital to give birth and we are having a home birth. We added our own words to compensate but I thought I'd let other home birth mothers know. Otherwise, a really nice book!
Fantastic book for new big siblings!  Jul 6, 2007
My oldest daughter was 20 months old when her sister was born...we stocked up on at least 10 books on being a big sister and new babies. This one, by far, was her favorite and I think I can recite it cover to cover with my eyes closed, as we have read it at least 100 times...

I think because it is filled with pictures of real children and babies, as opposed to illustrations, it really captured her attention. The language was on her level. We read this book for MONTHS after the new baby came home and it really helped us to identify how my daughter was feeling...she would nod her head adamantly at certain points in agreement and mimic some of the situations in the illustrations. It really helped us (her parents) to communicate with a barely talking (or understandable) toddler.

She is now 3 1/2, and we STILL are reading this book!
EXCELLENT resource for kids having new siblings  Jun 7, 2007
This is a GREAT book that talks to kids in their language and explains a lot about a new baby at home. LOVED IT!
Great Book for Discussing Sibling's Feelings Toward the New Baby  Sep 21, 2005
The New Baby at Your House is a book that prepares a sibling for all of the ups and downs of having a new baby in the house. With vivid full-color photographs, this book takes a child from a mother's pregnancy, to the first visit to see the baby in the hospital, to the arrival of the baby at home, and all of the new experiences thereafter. It's a great book for discussing the many feelings that a sibling will have toward his or her new brother or sister. I highly recommend this book for all parents to share with children who are preparing for the arrival of a new baby.
