About the Author

Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; The Tushy Book; The Belly Book; and Big Girl Panties. There is a real Katie Woo ― she's Fran's great-niece ― but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved Mac computer in New York City, without the help of her two naughty cats, Chaim and Goldy.

More About the Author

My new picture book, "Happy in Our Skin," is  a bouncy, rhyming tribute to skin, in all its glory. It  begins with this welcome to a newborn child:

 "Look at you! 
You look so cute in your brand-new birthday suit.
This is how we all begin--
small and happy in our skin."
 
The fun continues with an appreciation of all kinds of skin colors, freckles, and birthmarks--as well as the delicious pleasure of being tickled and hugged. A giant block party of diverse families concludes the book with everyone happy in their skin.
It has received rave reviews from School Library Journal, Kirkus, and Booklist, as well as a starred review from Publishers Weekly.

My Katie Woo series is the -first easy-to-read chapter books featuring an Asian child. There are 40 of these storybooks, some of them collected in paperbacks that offer four stories in one volume. A few of these  are: "Katie Woo Rules the School," "Katie Woo 
and Friends," ""Katie Woo, Don't be Blue," and "Katie Woo Loves School." You can see a video about the Katie Woo books and get free downloadables at this website: http://www.capstonekids.com/characters/Katie-Woo/ 

I can be contacted through my website for school or Skype visits: www.franmanushkin.com or by emailing me directly at franm@nyc.rr.com. I'm also on Facebook and Twitter: franm22

My board book, BIG GIRL PANTIES, is a romp about a girl who's leaving diapers behind for the pleasures of wearing panties like  her mother and grandma and aunties! It has 274 rave reviews on Amazon.

Can you guess that I love writing books?

It was awesome. It was great. My favorite part was him talking to the baby. I am excited about being a big brother.

I LOVE this one! I was worried because I hadn't heard of it, but it had great reviews - so I went for it! I love how it gives examples - like big brothers eat cupcakes, babies drink bottles!

Super cute, a nice gift for a new big sibling. It reminds big sibs just how important they are. Love it.

The book itself is ok (no real story line), but the age range says 2-5 years old, but the descriptions in the book of what "big brothers do" is meant for a child that is at least 4 years old. If the child is going to be 2-3 years old when they become a big brother, the book doesn't really work.

This book is exactly what's needed for a soon to be NOT 'only child.' It makes him feel just as special AFTER his baby brother or sister is born, the same as he was before! A very cute read!

I bought this book to give to my 3yr old son for Valentines day from our expectant baby! He loved the idea that the baby in Mommy's belly gave him a present and we read it all the time! He tells everyone he is going to be the best big brother! Baby is now due in the next two weeks and he talks all about how he gets to have a cupcake and how he will help when the baby gets here! We'll see how he does when the time comes but I truly believe this book helped prepare him! I even bought a copy for a friends son who just became a big brother!

I gave this to a friend who is having her 2nd boy. The book is adorable and just right for a toddler who is about to become a big brother. The words and pictures are very sweet.

My son could relate to it and it made him more excited for his baby brother to be born. Simple read. Missing one star because it would have been nice if it showed mommy nursing the baby in addition to bottle-feeding.
