The perfect gift for any child with a new baby in his life - whether he welcomes the baby with frowns and sighs or open arms.
When a new baby arrives, it might look like all she does is sleep and eat. But babies are fascinating - as this lovingly created volume proves! It answers such important questions as: What do babies eat? What does all that baby babble really mean? What games do babies love to play? And what does it mean when they cry (as they so often do)?

PreS-Gr. 2. Lasky's new book for expectant children reads like a field guide to babies--their eating habits, their sleeping habits, and their sounds. Divided into topics such as "Wide-Awake Baby," "Baby Cries," and "Baby Games," the book offers quick takes, simple observations, and helpful advice in a reassuring manner. "When your baby babbles, babble right back. They think it's a real conversation. And it kind of is." Lasky clearly recognizes how jarring a new arrival can be to an older sib, but she dwells on the positive, engaging older children in the process of raising a baby. In a subtle way, she shows how paying attention to an infant's behavior helps make a more peaceful household: "You can help feed her, or cuddle her . . . . Even if your baby doesn't stop crying, she will still know that you are near and that you love her." Plecas' plentiful watercolor-and-ink illustrations have the bright, airy tone of kid-friendly greeting cards, all the better to get children into a meeting and greeting sort of mood. Abby Nolan
