A NATURAL FOLLOW-UP to parent-baby bonding seen in You and Me, Baby!, Lynn Reiser and Penny Gentieu’s new concept book focuses on sibling bonding of the two-to-four year old with the new baby in the family. Told in the voice of the “big” brother or sister, close-up photos show the two siblings together doing what each does best, such as drinking from bottle versus from a cup, or giving a toothless gummy smile versus a big toothy grin. It’s a nice mix of diverse children of both genders. Here is an upbeat book that helps preschool siblings feel special and important as it promotes a loving relationship.
Bright and engaging photographs feature four toddler/baby sibling duos. The pairs show a diverse mix of boys and girls in action-smiling, moving, playing-described from the perspective of the toddlers. Every page turn demonstrates a notable advantage to being the older sibling: "You can crawl?/Watch me go./I go fast-/You go slow!" This book works on several levels. Babies will love seeing the photographs of other babies. Older siblings will relish the positive reinforcement about their birth order. And beginning readers will find the text easy to conquer. An enjoyable and useful purchase.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
