WELCOME TO THE BIG KIDS CLUB is a new humorous picture book that gives children an idea of what to expect when they get a new sibling. Clinton, mom of three, teaches older siblings what your baby can see, why your baby cries, when your baby will be able to talk, how your baby knows you love them, and so much more (including why your baby poops so much!). She also acknowledges in the text that not all babies will have the same abilities and shows readers how they can interact with siblings who develop differently. With artwork sure to cause big-kid-sized giggles, this book is perfect for any member or soon-to-be member of the Big Kids Club. A Spanishlanguage edition, Bienvenidos al club de los niños grandes, will be concurrently released. Kirkus Reviews praised the book, saying, “The congratulatory tone and initiation into a secret club just may be the hook some new siblings need to feel special. A club that everyone will want to join.”

We all hold the seed of something wonderful inside us, just waiting for the right moment to bloom. In A Poem Grows Inside You, the seed of an idea waits for the rhythm of the rainfall to awaken it, then takes root and begins to grow. At once a celebration of the deep connection creatives have with their art and an acknowledgement of the courage it takes to let it into the sun, this beautifully illustrated picture book encourages readers to nurture their talents and boldly share them with the world.


Katey Howes is a haphazard gardener, a darn good rhymer, and a fun mother. She's also the award-winning author of RISSY NO KISSIES, BE A MAKER, and a growing assortment of other books. You can find Katey under a big tree on a small mountain in Eastern Pennsylvania with a bowl of popcorn, a notebook full of ideas, and a rescue pup named Samwise. Or find her on Twitter @kateywrites, on IG @kidlitlove, and at www.kateyhowes.com.
