Brooke Shields began modeling and acting during childhood and went on to star in film, on television, and on Broadway. She graduated with honors from Princeton University and is the author of a memoir, the New York Times bestselling Down Came the Rain, and a picture book, Welcome to Your World, Baby, also illustrated by Cori Doerrfeld. Brooke lives with her husband, writer/producer Chris Henchy, and their daughters, Rowan and Grier, in Los Angeles.From School Library Journal:
PreS—This sanitized description of being a big sister is well-meaning, but lacks tension and story. A girl goes through a laundry list of things that she can and will do with her new baby sister, and ends with, "We can even share cuddling with Mom./I love being your big sister!" Everything is positive, and lines like "...you smell so sweet—/especially your feet./I almost want to eat them, /but that would be silly!" have a distinctly adult sensibility to them. The illustrations are pleasant enough, with two cartoonish pixies with small blue eyes, oversize heads, and thin frames traipsing through the primarily pink-hued pages. Those who want a more balanced story may find Robie Harris's Hi New Baby! (Candlewick, 2000), Sally Lloyd Jones's How to Be a Baby—By Me, the Big Sister (Random, 2007), Jean Van Leeuwen's Benny and Beautiful Baby Delilah (Dial, 2006), and Kevin Henkes's Julius, the Baby of the World (HarperCollins, 1990) to be more effective.—Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
