Synopsis

This is Our Baby, Born Today by Varsha Bajaj

This is the Baby, wrinkled and gray. This is the Baby, born today. A baby's birth is always cause for celebration, and this baby elephant's family welcomes their new little one with gusto. Basking in its mother's love, the new-born's arrival is announced to the world by its trumpeting herd. It is doted on by adoring aunts and bathed in a cool lagoon with curious cousins. Under the shade of the ancient banyan trees, the rest of the forest comes alive to revel in the new arrival, and all in all, it is a truly joyous day when this majestic creature begins its life on earth. Finally, the cherished baby, safe under the smiling moon and sparkling stars, drifts contentedly to sleep.

About the Author

Varsha Bajaj (www.varshabajaj.com) grew up in a rambling house in Mumbai, India, surrounded by coconut, guava and betel nut trees. When she came to the United States to obtain her master's degree, her adjustment to the country was aided by her awareness of the culture through books. She has written two previous picture books, as well as the middle-grade novel Abby Spencer Goes to Bollywood, which was recently shortlisted for the Cybils Award and included on the Spirit of Texas Reading Program. She lives in Houston, Texas. Eliza Wheeler (www.wheelerstudio.com) wrote and illustrated Miss Maple's Seeds and has also illustrated several picture books and novels. She grew up in northern Wisconsin in a family of teachers, musicians, and artists. Some of the strongest influences on her creativity have been the wild Wisconsin seasons, canoeing the Brule River, picking blueberries with her grandmother, and digging through the snow with her brothers. She received the SCBWI Los Angeles International Conference Portfolio Grand Prize for her artwork. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
