As an often-pregnant and happy mother, Joan was concerned that books and pictures about childbirth rarely stress the impact of this greatest of human events on not just mother and child but on all members of a family. So the two friends decided to collaborate in words and pictures during Joan's sixth pregnancy. The work would continue through the birth and subsequent acceptance of the child as a part of the family. ..." Inscribed by Hardee in 1976.
