A sweet, humorous picture book for all new brothers and sisters who are anticipating the arrival of a new sibling.
When Archie notices his Mommy's tummy growing, he knows something strange is happening. Not only that: Mommy's office is suddenly completely pink! Mommy shows Archie a picture of his sister growing in her tummy, but Archie things it looks like an alien. Archie isn't sure that he wants a baby sister. He likes cars and trains and playing cowboys. He knows for sure that he doesn't like fluffy, frilly, and very pink things! But soon, a fluffy, frilly, and very pink bundle arrives at home. It's his new baby sister, Olive! Big brother Archie thinks she looks like a marshmallow, and he wonders if life will ever be the same again.

What an adorable book! I've read several picture books that deal with a new baby coming into the family, but this is my favorite. My kids especially loved this book since we are expecting another baby in our own family soon. They have asked me repeatedly when I'm going to the hospital for my sleepover, and if our new baby will look like a fluffy pink marshmallow. This book works so well for two reasons. The first is that it's written from the point of view of the child and his experience with the new development in their family. The second reason is the beautiful illustrations. The colors and the artwork are very visually appealing. This is a great book to have on your shelf if you are expecting a baby and want to share the experience with your other young child(ren).
