Employee Review

Big brother finds out about the new arrival of a baby sister, and learns to adapt to the change and look forward to her presence. There is no real conflict to make this story really interesting, just a possibility that things may turn bad. Also, a younger child may be confused, since brother is faced with baby sister one afternoon, without any warning or previous explanation. Yet the setting is well developed, looking at life before and after the arrival, and the lexicon is quite vast. The illustrations are well done and captivating.
