Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Sibling rivalry is the subject and Eve is not happy about the baby, who looks like he is several months old. She thinks the baby smells bad, cries too loud and costs too much. The latter is something most siX and sevenyearolds probably would not really think about unless they were told that money was being spent on the baby instead of them. Suddenly things change, the baby smells sweet after a bath and laughs a lot. Eve and the baby start playing together and now Eve loves the babya big change in a short number of pages. Yes, kids do have miXed feelings about new brothers and sisters, but this story is probably not one of the best to help allay those fears. A word list and information about the author and illustrator wrap up the book. A Level B entry in the "Rookie Reader" series. 2000, Grolier, $18.00 and $4.95. Ages 6 to 7.
