Everyone knows babies can't talk, but if they could, they'd have a lot to thank their older siblings for -- whether it's giving them extra licks of an ice cream cone, teaching them songs to sing, or not letting them put sand in their mouths. This big thank-you of a book is sure to add an extra layer of appreciation to any sibling relationship. Julie Markes's sweet text and Laura Rader's humorous illustrations will delight the entire family.

Laura Rader has illustrated many popular books for children, including A Book of Hugs, A Book of Friends, and A Book of Kisses, all by Dave Ross. She is also the author and illustrator of Who'll Pull Santa's Sleigh Tonight? and Santa's New Suit, which Publishers Weekly called, in a starred review, a "holiday outing [with] plenty of panache." Ms. Rader lives in Southern California.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Markes cleverly gives voice to a mouse toddler that plans to thank its older sibling for sharing playthings and ice cream, being good company, tolerating a pull on the ear, etc.: "I can't talk now, but when I do, the thing I'll want to say most of all is I love you." Rader's whimsical illustrations are uncluttered and surrounded by lots of white space. They depict lively children, attuned parents, and typical childhood scenarios that include food tossed from a high chair onto the kitchen floor. On the last spread, a doting mother and father watch from the doorway as their offspring read Good Night, Mouse. The frustrations of an older child are addressed while the bond between the siblings grows stronger in this simple, endearing read-aloud that has broad appeal.
