not just for the house having a new baby

We got the first copy when we were having second child and read it with her big brother. Now we have a new copy for the twins and no more baby in the house. Our twins love the book for all the noisy sound, "Beep", "Bang", "Ring", etc., and later "Shh". It is a love sharing and fun book.

I like the series

My daughter loves this series. She is so proud about being able to read these books "all by herself." I would give this book 5 stars, but as a breastfeeding mother, I was disappointed that this book, like most of the books we have gotten about "big sisters" teaches that bottle feeding is the norm.

Interactive, sweet and fun

Our narrator, a girl of 4 or 5, tells us about the new baby at her house. The first two-page spread is typical of the whole book: a full-page picture on the right shows a mom and dad bringing a baby home where he is greeted by the family pets and his new sister; the left-hand page inserts pictures for many of the simple nouns being used, and reads -- "We have a new (baby) in our (house). His (hands) are tiny. His (feet) are tiny. He is so cute."The story shows how the baby naps through many everyday noises, though his sister worries about him being disturbed, only to be awakened by a tiny fly buzzing about. The baby cries. Neither a bottle nor a bunny comfort him. It turns out he wants to be held by his big sister. She kisses his nose and the baby falls asleep. The story is 21 pages of a few lines each, and is followed by four pages of flash cards (six on each page) which are mainly nouns contained in the story.My two-year-old loves the feeling of participating in the reading, enjoys the funny story, and likes to point or say the flash words. I'd bet your preschooler will enjoy it too!
