Arthur is plainly worried about the new baby expected at his house, but his plucky kid sister, D. W. is delighted. While D. W. learns how to diaper and helps her mother pack for the hospital, Arthur keeps his distance. But one day, when D.W. has to ask for Arthur's help to keep Baby Kate from crying, he steps in and learns that the new addition to his family isn't so bad after all.

Praise for Arthur's Baby:
"Clever and appealing details (a photo album with baby pictures of D. W. and Arthur is a real treat) fill this charming addition to the series."--Publisher's Weekly
"Like its predecessors, Arthur's Baby deals reassuringly with a developmental issue. And like those earlier books, the humor lies in the colorful, sunny illustrations (pen, crayon, and wash), as well as the witty banter between siblings. Combined with a simple, direct style, this has sure-fire appeal for the primary grade set, as well as Arthur addicts of all ages. It should also be of special interest to families expecting a new arrival."--School Library Journal
