More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Minnie and Her Baby Brother by Melanie Walsh, a three-year-old compares herself with the new baby in the family. Lift-the-flaps illustrate their differences ("I sleep in a new big-girl bed. My baby brother sleeps in my old crib") as well as the bonds they share ("He loves when I read to him-if he's awake"). The illustrations of the round-headed children and their surroundings exude a soothing sense of simplicity. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Twelve pages of lift-the-flaps begin as Minnie describes the difference between herself and her baby brother. Slowly we learn that she has teeth and he has none. She can walk and run and hop and he can only crawl. She has her own new bed and he has her old crib. She can dress herself, and she can dress him! Sometimes he cries and she can cheer him by reading to him; and, finally, they can play together. It is the story of a little girl getting used to another child in the family, and would make a lovely gift to take to an older daughter when making a first visit to a new baby. 2003, Candlewick Press, Ages 2 to 5.
— Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-This successful and satisfying lift-the-flap book breathes fresh life into a familiar subject. Three-year-old Minnie draws comparisons between herself and her baby brother. She uses a toilet, he wears diapers; she has lots of teeth, he has none. She also explores the basics of their relationship. When he's sad, she tries to cheer him up. Sometimes he spoils her game, but she still loves him, as the final page declares. The first-person narrative is immediate and direct. The illustrations are clean, colorful, and dynamic. In its flat, smooth, and yet expressive application of acrylics, Walsh's style is reminiscent of Marisabina Russo's work. The use of flaps is well integrated with the telling of the story. First readers hear what the girl can do, and then they raise a sturdy flap to discover the baby's traits-pointing out how he is different and how they interact. The clever design adds interesting details, such as when an easel is opened to reveal Minnie's painting on the other side. Charming in its simplicity, this title is a pleasure to share aloud.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
