The New York Times praised this best-selling picture book as "adorable, original, well-illustrated and fabulous." In this first book in the How-To Series (which includes How To Get Married and How to Get a Job), the know-it-all big sister narrator tells it like it is: When you''re a baby you don''t read books. You eat them. You don''t know how old you are, or even if you''re a boy or a girl. And you have to keep a special plug in your mouth to stop your scream from coming out. But one day, you won''t be little anymore, and then you''ll be taller and smarter, and actually quite clever. Like the narrator. And you''ll be able to share memories of what it was like when you were little with your incredible Big Sister.

Editorial Reviews

Review, The New York Times Book Review, December 2, 2007:
"An ultracharming picture book."

Starred review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books, April 2007:
"There''s plenty to pore over in the detail-rich scenes, and the childlike but deft lines match the text''s exuberance . . . This is perfect family fare and a welcome departure from storybooks that assume the worst when a new life joins the family."

Appropriate for ages: 6 - 8
