Synopses & Reviews
As a new baby is showered with gifts and attention, a big brother or sister often feels left out. Here's the perfect gift to accompany the baby's presents. Inside its colorful pages are fun activities for creating an album of big sister, or brother, experiences. Creative, positive, and realistic, it also provides kids with ways to express their good an not-so-good feeling about their infant siblings. Two pages of stickers add to the decorating and drawing fun. Give this perfectly-priced, stylish book to any new sister or brother, and they'll discover the many great things about being an older sibling!
A first-person text invites older siblings to make a book all about themselves being a new big brother or sister. Encourages the child's interest in the baby but emphasizes what it means to the older child and how they now see themselves. Fully-illustrated pages help a kid create an album of his/her experiences, feelings, and perspectives--with good helpings of fun and silliness. Includes two pages of stickers to decorate pages and add to drawings. Though its tone is lighthearted, this subtly wise book inspires a child to discover a wide variety of ideas about self, family, growing up, and the new baby.
