Brother has a baby in the house. It is sometimes loud, often smelly, and always in need of attention, much like his big brother. (But do not tell the narrator, Big Brother, that!) Big Brother is simply big enough to appreciate his place in the scheme of things. Adults will enjoy reading this sweet story about a new baby in the house, and little Big Brothers everywhere will bask in the thought of eating cupcakes, riding Daddy's back, and snuggling with Mommy.
