PreSchool-K Make room in your new baby section for this superb child's-eye look at the changes wrought by an addition to the family. The narrator is a three-year-old charmer who describes each black-and-white photo as though paging through an album. The text is composed of short declarative sentences sprinkled with typical preschool originality (``My Mom has to get strong so she can push the baby out. I am strong because I am Superman''). In addition to covering the physical changes in Momher lap is ``too bumpy'' to sit on, the baby makes her sleepy, etc.Banish gives children a good look at the ups and downs of becoming a big brother. After some discreet, non-threatening delivery room scenes, a new brother arrives. Reviews are mixed when he comes home. One day, however, the baby smiles at his big brother, and readers can see that everything will work out. The wonderfully true-to-life text fits perfectly with the photographs, which are natural and unposed without being amateurish. This is the ultimate book to explain the changes new babies bring. It focuses squarely on the concerns of the former only child, and will help children to understand that now life will be different, but better. Holland's We Are Having a Baby (Scribner, 1972) deals with this topic in a similar manner, but Banish says it best. Libraries will want multiple copies of this revision and redesign of I Want to Tell You About My Baby (Wingbow Pr, 1982; o.p.). Lucy Young Clem, Evansville Vanderburgh County Public Library, Ind.
