Editorial Reviews

Readertotz blog
“The New Baby series from Child's Play is spot on accurate. … watercolors and graphite or grease pencil outlines are friendly and exuberant.”
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The wait and then eventual arrival of a new sibling can be traumatic. In this "New Baby" series, the focus is on positive responses and active involvement of an older sibling. Baby is really growing up and sometimes that can cause friction. The little one may pull hair thinking it is great fun or may yell when put down for a nap. Sometimes baby gets all the attention of friends or plays with toys that belong to the older child. But it is not all bad. There are plenty of times when baby thinks you are the greatest and laughs at what the older child does. Also, when baby naps, this becomes a special time to spend with mom, such as sitting on her lap and reading a book. There are outings in the stroller, building a block tower, and shared time in the bath or cuddling together reading a book. The goal is to encourage interaction and to help young ones understand the changes that will be occurring in their lives and those of their parents. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS—These four books are just right for toddlers awaiting and adjusting to the birth of a new sibling. They cover pregnancy, welcoming the baby, and learning to play and live together. One toddler visits the doctor with a pregnant mother. Another sibling "helps" feed the baby and learns to enjoy mom's attention while the infant is asleep. The multiracial families are always smiling and gentle. Colorful artwork fills each page. The writing is clear, conversational, and full of common situations. In reaction to having her hair pulled, big sister says, "Ouch! Don't do that! Why is baby laughing?" Older kids will prefer the sparkle and humor of Jonathan Shipton's Baby Baby Blah Blah Blah! (Holiday House, 2009), Barney Saltzberg's Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby? (Candlewick, 2005), or Emma Chichester Clark's No More Kissing! (Doubleday, 2002), but Fuller's books speak to the very young.—Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK
