Highly Recommended for very young children
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.

Highly Recommended - you must check it out especially if you have a new baby coming home soon!!
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!
