There is so much to find out when a baby is born! What does it smell like, and when will it walk? When does it sleep, and what does it like to eat? A new addition to any family is exciting, but the experience can alsobe worrying and confusing for siblings. Coping with the new situations and emotions that arise can be very challenging. This series of four board books deals with the anticipation of waiting for the new baby, the excitement of the arrival itself, and the beginnings of the special relationship that develops between siblings. The simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child.

We bought this book for our 17 month old son, who will be 22 months old when his little brother is born. This is a great new baby book for this age group. My son chooses this book regularly, and wants us to read it over and over again. The simple text and bright illustrations are a great introduction to the idea that the family structure will be changing. I love that this book shows several illustrations where the new baby is at the breast. It helps that I look like the mom in the book! We use the pictures in the book to talk about our own family, and we call the child in the book (who is probably meant to be a little girl) by my son's name. We ask our son to point to each member of our family. At first, when we asked him to point to himself in the picture, he would point to the new baby. But now he identifies with the older child. This kind of basic understanding is just what I was hoping for.

I got this book at the library for my 2 year old grandson just before his baby brother was born. there are no words but lots of pictures and lots of family members--we gave the family members names of our own family members and he really liked that! you can make up your own story about the family, feeding the baby, being gentle, being quiet and being loved! Great board book! Loved it so much that I had to buy it!

I recently bought this book for my two-year old and she loves it. Her baby sister is due in 3 months. She asks to read this book every night. The language is simple and easy to understand and she seems to love the pictures. We read it together and talk about what things will be like when her new baby sister arrives. I would recommend this book for toddles and pre-school-aged children.
