Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judith Gravitz
Peter is not pleased by the arrival of his new baby sister. Not only does she seem to infringe upon his noisy playtime, but his parents also have preempted his baby furniture for her use. And worse yet, they have painted it pink! When his favorite chair seems to be the next painting subject, Peter acts. Taking his chair, food and other beloved items, Peter runs away... to the front stoop. As Peter goes to sit down in his baby chair to think, he begins to understand what it means to be a big brother. This timeless story, which is approaching its 30th anniversary (1997), is as charming and insightful as ever. The audiocassette in this tape/book package has one side just for listening; the other side has page cues to use in conjunction with the book.

Story and illustrations loved by my 4 yr old and myself! Well done on nook version as well with read to me feature a favorite of my daughter's since she was 3. Lately however, the read and record feature has also been discovered as a favorite so she can record herself reading the story out loud!

My 2 year old has loved Ezra Jack Keats' books about Peter since he was 9 months old. We bought this one in preparation for a new baby and our son loves this one too.

My 2 yr. old loves this book. She can recite it by heart. It tremendously helped her adjust to the new routine involving her baby sister.

I'm a 14yr old girl who has been in love with this book since the age of three. I will forever cherish this book.I remember reading it over and over again when my little brother was born so i wouldn't feel left out.
