A joyous child's-eye view of a growing family

Having a new baby at home can be a rewarding experience for a big brother or sister. Helping, playing, and snuggling up together are all part of the fun.

With a child-friendly trim size and large type, these books are perfect for young big brothers and sisters. Tips for understanding and responding to an older sibling's special needs are included for parents.

Synopsis:

Warm, loving pictures accompany this upbeat look at how a family grows when a new baby comes home. A companion volume to I'm a Big Brother.

Hi! I'm Susan "The Shower Diva" and have actually written a review about this book on http://theshowerdiva.com

It's PERFECT for a Big-Sister-to-Be!

To get our 18-month old used to the idea that there would be a new baby in the family, we read this book every day and pointed to each illustration with the name of "Mommy" "Daddy" "Tori" and "Emily" -- This way, Tori got began to imagine a 4th person in our family occupying space in the home.

So when the day came for Emily to arrive, not only was Tori okay with it (no sibling rivalries or jealousies), she was actually welcoming, protective and loving to Emily!! I really think it was due to this book!

I have a friend who has a similar situation and she's getting this book as a gift from me right now!
