Joni Rubinstein, M. Ed., is a wife, mother, and an elementary school
counselor. Since each of her children turned one, she has read a poem to
them on the night before their birthdays. This tradition has been a part of
her family for almost 30 years. Five years ago when her oldest daughter's
friend had a baby (who calls her Grandma Joni) she decided to write this
book as a way to expand on the birthday eve ritual and to create a tradition
for another generation. She hopes that this book becomes a lasting part of
your family as well.
Joni has produced the videos Healthy Touch: Infant Massage for Teenage
Parents and Bonding Through Touch: Infant Massage for Adoptive Families.
She is committed to supporting families in creating new traditions that
celebrate love, respect, and attachment.
Juana Martinez- Neal has been painting sheep and clouds as long as she can
remember. She was born in Lima, Peru where she raised no sheep but had plenty
of clouds in her Peruvian sky. The Night Before My Birthday Book is her third
picture book and the first one where she got a chance to paint sheep.
