Nancy Cote lives in Massachusetts.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–A boy describes all of the things that he can do–crawl, walk, and eventually run–and his parents tell him that he's the best. When a new baby comes along, he wonders why they wanted another child if he's the best. At first, he is jealous of his brother, but when the tot smiles at him, he decides that maybe the little guy can stay and they begin building a relationship. Then, another infant arrives, and the older sibling is very sympathetic about his younger brother's reaction to the new addition. This exploration of the growth and development of a loving, caring family is told through simple rhyming language and lively gouache and watercolor-pencil artwork. Each spread has several small captioned illustrations (e.g., I sit or I play in mud), bringing to mind a photo album. Brightly colored two-page paintings are interspersed throughout, showing larger views of day-to-day life. The palette is cheerful and warm. The narrator's emotions run the gamut from happy to sad to angry. A good choice for parents to share with their children when a new family member is on the way.–Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
