    This book explains it just right!

    This book hits the spot! It was a wonderful idea to make a sister version and a brother version of the same book. It's so nice that there are talented authors and illustrators that know just how to communicate to a young child a new concept in such an appropriate, positive way. I found it helpful to introduce this book before the new baby arrive. I like how it plays up the fact that the baby can't do many things that the big sister can do. And it sets the tone that the new little person needs quite a bit of attention (help). I am a preschool teacher and when one of my students is about to become the big brother, I always recommend 2 books--"I'm a Big Brother" to read with the child and "The Pocket Parent" as a handy quick-read reference of sanity saving suggestions for Mommy and Daddy. "Pocket Parent" is literally pocket-sized and loaded with hundreds of helpful tips exclusively written for parents of 2's, 3's, 4's, and 5's. This A-Z guide has a number of pertinent chapters to this topic including: the new baby, bad words, bedtime, biting, sibling rivalry, "I hate you", the "gimmes", interrupting, lying, self-esteem, and separation anxiety. There are many issues that can arise when a new baby comes into the family with a preschooler. Both of these books help to relieve a child's and parent's anxiety and frustration with the changes in behavior and routine that are bound to happen. Both books are invaluable comforting "friends" to be consulted and reread at a moment's notice.

    Big brother Izaac

    I bought this book for my friend's son for his birthday. My friend is expecting a baby in May. She really likes the book and I read it also and thought it would be perfect for explaining to a young child what is happening and what is going to happen.

    Great book for my sons transition from only child to big brother!

    This book helped my husband and I talk about the changes of having a new baby in the house with our 3 year old. The books refers to the new sibling as 'baby' so whether you are having a boy or girl, it is suitable. My son loves to reread this story often, and we discuss the changes that are soon to come.

    Great gift when the baby arrives

    My mom gave this book to my 2 1/2 year old son while I was in the hospital having my second son. He instantly loved it and found solace in it with the chaos that ensued when his little brother arrived. He asked us to read it to him every night for about the first two months--and now seven months later he asks us to read it at least once a week. The writing is simple but it perfectly explains what babies can and cannot do and gives the big brother something to relate to. For example, babies cry to tell us that something is the matter or that the big brother can have 'pizza and apples and ice cream' but the little brother can't. I would highly recommend this for anyone with a toddler or preschooler.

    Great book!

    Very well written book. Our son loved reading it, especially when we substituted his name for the boy in the book. We looked at several 'big brother' books and this one was our favorite.

    Wonderful gift to older siblings

    I bought this for my 17 month old when my second son was born. He still loves to read it over and over 3 months later. He likes to point out mommy, daddy, himself and his brother in the pictures. It is short and simple enough to keep his attention and he loves the pictures. I now buy this book for the children of friends who are expecting their second child.

    Great preparation for 2 year old

    We are about to have our second baby and wanted to start preparing our 2 1/2 year old for his arrival. This book is great because you can substitute your childs name for the name in the book and modify the wording for before the baby comes. We have been reading the book every night for about 3 weeks and he always asks for it. I don't know how much he "gets" that he's going to have a baby brother, but this definitely helps plant the seed.

    a good big brother book

    This book has been helpful getting my son ready for a new baby. It is a nice book because it doesn't talk about mommy being pregnant. It only talks about a new baby in the house. So it is appropriate for adoptions too.
