This book was exactly what I needed to express to my daughter the importance of her role in our family. She is the older sister of twins and even though she did well with their arrival after reading this book I believe she understood how truly special she is and how much she is addored by her daddy and mommy. Well Done Joanna Cole and Maxie Chambliss!

Aida loses her throne

I bought this book for a friend's granddaughter. Aida, aged two and half is has just been dethroned. In fact, life as she knows it is over. The Dauphin has arrived. I'm not crazy about the illustrations. I found them flat and static. But, at least the girl wasn't blonde...
I bought this book for a friend's granddaughter. Aida, aged two and half is has just been dethroned. In fact, life as she knows it is over. The Dauphin has arrived. I'm not crazy about the illustrations. I found them flat and static. But, at least the girl wasn't blonde. If what you seeking is a simple book to reassure the child that she is still loved this might do it.

The text is serviceable. But it could prompt some useful discussion in a family that might be overwhelmed by the changes that a second child brings. At the least this pleasant little volume can serve as a weapon.

"But, I was just reading to the baby."

    Wonderful for an older sibling.

    My daughter loves this book. She adores seeing the baby and reading about the baby's care. We also have the Big Brother version for my oldest son, when his sister was born. We got the Big Sister one, when my youngest son was born. It is really nice way to introduce siblings to the idea of a new baby in the house and a way to make them feel special.

    Great understanding of what a big sister is

    My daughter read this book about a month and a half before my son was born. She loved reading the book and it really helped her understand that she could do more things than her new baby could. She would repeat the words in the book (He can't eat ice cream or pizza...). I believe this book helped her identify that she was very special because she was a big sister and because we took extra time to read her this story.
