Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hines has a gift for depicting children in their natural habitats. This book, however, lacks the verve that some of her other books possess ( Daddy Makes the Best Spaghetti and Taste the Raindrops , among them). Big Like Me presents the positive side of being an older sibling; the narrator tells his new sister all the things he plans to teach her: about listening to stories, playing hide-and-seek and so on. On each page the siblings grow a little older, until the last page, which portrays a celebration of baby's first birthday. The illustrations are beautifully natural in the mood they convey: it's nice to see the mother nursing the baby, for example, and carrying her in a front pack. But the text is so rosy and uneventful that even the most enthusiastic older brother or sister is likely to be skeptical about such a future. Ages 4-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-- A book that's sure to be popular with those looking for a book to ease the introduction of a new sibling into the family. Whisper-soft pastel pencil drawings show the interactions between a newborn and her older brother throughout the baby's first year. The pictures are framed and labeled with the appropriate month. The backgrounds are kept simple to keep the emphasis on the two children. The story is told from the perspective of the older child as he relates, sometimes in verse, how he will show the little one everything: ``I'll show you laps and taking naps.'' Hines keeps the vocabulary appropriately simple for a young child. As an illustrator, she has set herself the difficult task of showing the changing sizes and activities of a baby and young child month by month through the course of a year. The drawings are not static presentations, but show a range of movements from crawling to bouncing on Mom's knee. Some renderings are a bit off, but the whole is so enjoyable that they do not detract from the overall presentation. --Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library

    A wonderful book for a new 'big brother'

    This book is about a very young little boy telling his new baby sister about all the things she'll learn that he has learned so recently. It is a sweet and warm book with wonderful illustrations about a loving relationship between a young boy and his baby sister.
