Editorial Reviews

Clearly designed to help a toddler accept a new brother or sister, this pastel-colored picture book, with minimal text and simple illustrations, celebrates having a new baby in the family. The small child is a big part of every picture. Double-paged spreads with large, clear shapes show the smiling parents and child together, looking at the baby, touching it, holding it, feeding it, washing it. . . . The softly textured illustrations and the rhythm of the few plain words together express the physicalness of the experience." Booklist, ALA"An inviting concept book that should find a warm welcome in many newly expanded families." Kirkus Reviews"Each new facet of taking care of a baby is brought out in this charming picture book. not only are new infants exciting, they're also a big responsibility as Falwell gently reinforces. With an economy of text and simple illustrations, she describes bringing a baby home, involving a sibling in its care, and a happy family going through its routine. Soft pastel hues of pinks and salmons, purples and blues highlight the action. . . . A sound addition to the large body of books about babies." School Library Journal "
