Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book! I am expecting my third baby in a couple of weeks; my two sons are 3 and 18 months. I received this book in the mail tonight, and read it to my 3 year old right away. What an EXCELLENT book! It had the perfect balance between providing information and to answer questions and skipping unnecessary details. My son enjoyed the story and really demonstrated ability to relate to the characters in his expectation for his baby sister to arrive. I recommend it for anyone expecting children with preschoolers already in the home.

Editorial Reviews

"From a chart on how a baby grows up in utero to the end of her first day home, this book covers the entire birthing process as described by an older brother. . . . The book objectively presents intimate images and experiences: the baby inside the womb (shown in mother's tummy and in a full-page close-up), the mother nursing her, the boy and his dad carefully sponging around the umbilical cord scab. . . . When Eliza hits the scene the artwork really shines, as Rock-well captures both the skinny helplessness and surprising individuality of a newborn. Readers who have already welcomed a new baby into their home will enjoy remembering the events portrayed here while future siblings will gain insight into what's in store for them."--School Library Journal, Starred"In a refreshing departure from other books about siblings . . . the approach of this text is optimistic, reflected in Rockwell's bright, cheerful illustrations. An upbeat, encouraging account."--Kirkus Reviews"Rockwell integrates a factual approach and a down-home quality. . . . Emphasis and proportion accurately reflect a happy child's point of view."--Publishers Weekly
