Max does everything he can think of to encourage his new
sibling to be born. He talks to his mommy''s tummy, sings to it,
plays his drum for it, but nothing seems to work. Max is convinced
that this baby will never arrive ... until the day finally comes
when Daddy takes Mommy to the hospital.
Harriet Ziefert has written a delightful story about the
anticipation of a new arrival. Expectant parents will want to read
it with their children, and soon-to-be older siblings are sure to
identify with Max. Best of all, there''s a gift in the back of the
book for the big brother or sister to give to the new baby: a
nursery door hanger with two important messages: "Shhhh! Baby
sleeping" and "Come in! Baby awake."
