Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Falwell ( Feast for 10 ) decks out this understated picture book in nursery-room colors--an appropriate choice, as her story prepares small children for the imminent birth of a sibling. A multiracial family welcomes a new child, the parents explaining to their firstborn what having a baby means to the family: ``We have a baby! A baby to love . . . '' The parents include the older child--for example, the illustration for ``A baby to feed'' shows the infant at the mother's breast, the child curled at her side, sipping from a straw. The cut-paper artwork has the texture of crayon drawings, adding movement to the clean, clear compositions. Both pictures and text extend to the reader the warm, cozy exchanges of these parents and their young. Ages 2-5. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Each new facet of taking care of a baby is brought out in this charming picture book. Not only are new infants exciting, they're also a big responsibility as Falwell gently reinforces. With an economy of text and simple illustrations, she describes bringing a baby home, involving a sibling in its care, and a happy family going through its routine. Soft pastel hues of pinks and salmons, purples and blues highlight the action. The themes and ideas introduced here will be best brought out in one-on-one sharing. Although children may not notice or care, Falwell's illustrations are ethnically ambiguous, and it is impossible to determine the gender of the older child. A sound addition to the large body of books about babies.-Elizabeth Hanson, Chicago Public Library
