Overview

The bond between a new baby and its sibling is always special and uniquely rewarding. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to adapt to the baby’s wants and needs! A new addition to any family is exciting, but the experience can also be worrying and confusing for siblings. Coping with the new situations and emotions that arise can be very challenging. This series of four board books deals with the anticipation of waiting for the new baby, the excitement of the arrival itself, and the beginnings of the special relationship that develops between siblings. The simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child.

Editorial Reviews

“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. The new sibling is growing up. But he is still not able to do things on his/her own, like use the potty or ride a slide at the playground. At the grocery store, the little one rides in the cart while the older child helps select items off the shelves. The baby is fed, but the older child can eat with a knife and fork. Playtime is different and when baby is asleep then it is time to bring out the special blocks. Some games like peek-a-boo can be played together. Best of all, being the oldest does not mean missing out on any parental affection. There are plenty of big hugs. 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

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
