As the oldest of five children, a mother of two and a nurse educator for over 3,000 children in Big Brother-Big Sister classes, author Dianne Danzig knows what it's like when babies join families. Quoted in Parents Magazine on how to prepare siblings for a new baby, Dianne, an RN, has cared for well babies, infants in intensive care and older children.
With Babies Don't Eat Pizza, Dianne uses sensitivity and kid-friendly humor to fill the need for a multiracial book that honestly answers 4-8 year olds' real questions, perceptions and concerns about babies. "How do babies grow inside?" "What do they do?" "What can I do?" "How do I feel about this?" "What about me?"
The book was also designed to include oft-missed sibling preparation topics such as breast and bottle feeding, adoption, twins and infants with special needs.
On another project, volunteering for a fundraiser to benefit San Francisco children, Dianne helped write the bestseller, "The City by the Bay - A Magical Journey Around San Francisco" (Chronicle Books). She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.
