My Baby Brother: What a Miracle!by Sylvia Rouss
When baby brother Daniel arrives, big sister Sarah Leah doesn't see what all the fuss is about. Mommy and Daddy, as well as Aunt Judy, Bubbie and Zaydie, think he's an amazing miracle. Sarah thinks her whole family needs glasses! As the days pass, the house is filled with joy as family and friends stop by to welcome baby Daniel and prepare for his brit. Sarah's baffled by all the excitement. What's so miraculous about a tiny baby with no teeth who cries all the time? A miracle, Sarah knows, is when God created the world in seven days, or when a drop of oil burned for eight days at Hanukkah.In this first volume of the charmingly written and delightfully illustrated Growing Up Jewish With Sarah Leah Jacobs series, Sarah comes to love her baby brother and realize what a miracle he truly is.
