Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A number of releases focus on babies and toddlers. Youngsters can learn about newborns in Love That Baby! A Book About Babies for New Brothers, Sisters, Cousins, and Friends by Kathryn Lasky, illus. by Jennifer Plecas. Divided into sections such as "Wide-Awake Baby" and "Wet Babies," the volume explains things that all babies do, as well as advice for what to do with crying babies; "Baby Games" offers suggestions such as how to play peekaboo. Plecas's humorous, cartoonish illustrations depict the infants at their happiest, most irritable and often at their messiest. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This book is a must-have for youngsters who are expecting a baby to come into their lives. It covers all of the major aspects of babies, and will help children learn what to expect. For example, young readers will see how these little bundles of joy love to eat and sleep. They will also see that babies quickly grow and become more interesting for older children to play with. But it also covers the less than fun side of babies: they cry a lot when they are hungry, have dirty diapers, or, seemingly, just to exercise their lungs. This is a great book to read aloud with children. It can provide an excellent opportunity for them to ask questions about babies and about how their own lives might change. The book is sure to help big brothers and sisters understand that a new baby is life-changing, but for the better. Charming watercolor and ink drawings throughout show tender examples of babies with their families. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 1 to 5.
—Cherie Ilg Haas
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Each newborn is unique, "reddish pink or brownish red.- bald or has a few spikes of hair, or maybe a little dab of fuzz or one corkscrew curl." Whether it's a new sibling, cousin, or a friend's new sister, this book makes it clear that babies may take a bit getting used to. Lasky dispenses thoughtful information, rock-solid advice, and suggestions for soothing a crying infant. Plecas's delightful watercolor-and-ink illustrations have touches of humor and are often set against vibrantly colored pages. They bring to life the difficulties and joys of having a new family member in the home. Straightforward, expressive child-friendly language will immediately grab listeners' attention. A loving and indispensable guide.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A reassuring mini-encyclopedia of what life is like with a new baby addresses its audience of only slightly older siblings with enthusiastic cheer. From what babies look like when they are born, to what babies do for fun, each page features illustrations and explanations that can help children become prepared for the new addition in their lives, whether it's a sibling, cousin, or friend. Lasky offers suggestions in each section on helping as well as how to interact with this newcomer, including words of encouragement to help in the difficult times. Sweet and simple pictures feature all things baby, including diapering, feeding, bathing, and playing with babies. Spot illustrations use balloon dialogue to add realism and humor. A final page explains that even though babies are "sticky, icky, and slimy, with bananas behind their ears," they are only babies for a little while. Altogether as charming as a clean and smiling infant. (Picture book. 3-7)
