Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Spring promises to be very special for Franklin, since his parents told him they were going to have a baby. Franklin is filled with anticipation¾he had always wanted to be a big brother. "I can make babies laugh, and I can burp them, too," he says excitedly. "You will be a wonderful big brother," replies his mother lovingly. From that moment on, Franklin waits impatiently for signs of spring to arrive. When he finally, finally, finally cradles his sister gently in his arms, he says, "I'm your big brother, Franklin, and I've been waiting for you." Vivid, full color and full-page illustrations accompany the text. This is a very nice story to prepare an older child for a new baby. With the focus on joyous emotions and loving behavior, this story of Franklin sets a very fine example for an older sibling. Part of the "Franklin" series. 2000, Kids Can Press,

    Big help

    I got this book for my son not long after we found out we were having another baby. I really think it helped him understand and start to prepare for his little sister.
