Won-Ton, a young panda, learns that he is going to have a new brother or sister, helps his grandfather build a crib, and worries about being too small

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Three warm, cozy easy-to-read stories in the Hoban tradition. In the first, Won-Ton, a young panda, finds Mother's tummy getting more and more in the way when he wants to sit on her lap. When Mother explains to Won-Ton, through a story, that he is going to have a new brother or sister, Won-Ton hugs her tummy to say "Hello." In the second story, Grandpa comes to stay while Mother goes to have the baby. Together Grandpa and Won-Ton build a crib for Won-Ton's new baby sister. In the third, Won-Ton worries about being smaller than his friends. Mother reassures him that being small is just fine. The slightly comical illustrations are colorful and cheerful, complementing the text. The story in which Won-Ton worries about his size seems more of an add-on than an integral part of the book. However, children expecting an addition to the family and children requesting family stories will enjoy the book and gain an extra measure of reassurance and security from it. Marguerite Lewis, Glenmont Elementary School, N . Y.

From Publishers Weekly:

Trouble-free and irresistibly engaging, Rigby's first book contains three little stories about an anthropomorphic panda family. Fans of Carter's Clipper will recognize her admired touch in the colorful illustrations, showing toddler Won-Ton, Mama, Papa and Grampa in their smart outfits as well as the appointments of their home and the bamboo forest nearby. The first episode occurs when Won-Ton's mother tells him there will be a new Panda soon. In the second, the boy helps Grampa make a crib for the baby, a girl named Su-Lin. Not a bit jealous, Won-Ton likes playing with and caring for Su-Lin. In the last adventure, though, he does cry over his smallness. He has to stand on a stool to reach a lollipop for Su-Lin and he envies his tall friends. Mama knows how to chase her son's blues, however, and he agrees it's okay to be smaller than most.
