Uniquely written from the perspective of the baby, Why I Need You is a gift for parents at any stage of parenthood. For new parents, it is an inspirational book that encourages them to press on, even when the day's requirements include changing another gooey diaper and wiping spit-up off of their best outfit.

The birth of a baby is both wondrous and miraculous-often described as the happiest day of a parent's life. Even so, any new parent experiences a certain degree of fear upon the arrival of a newborn. Mixed with the joy and anticipation of welcoming a new life into the world is the overwhelming feeling of being completely responsible for the nurturing and well-being of a brand-new human. "I wish my daughter had come with an instruction book," writes Gregory E. Lang, "a parent's manual of endless details describing all possible infant behaviors."

Since no book existed, Lang, like millions of other parents, felt his way along and learned by trial and error. Why I Need You is the record of what he learned, the manual that didn't come with his daughter.

Why I Need You evokes the tender moments of child rearing and the emotion-filled memories that last a lifetime, reminding them from time to time why they were loved — and why they were needed.
