About this title


Relates Emma's activities with her new baby brother, Ben, as they play, eat lunch, and look at a book together

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A stylish entry in a new series, featuring charming photographs of a young girl, Emma, and her baby brother, Ben, that have been superimposed on painted backgrounds of household scenes. The text is organized in two-page chapters, each describing a scene in the siblings' day, and is easy enough for beginning readers. Emma plays the little mother as she dresses, feeds, bathes, plays with, and puts Ben to bed. The mother is mentioned occasionally; she gives directions off-camera. Emma sometimes encounters rough spots, such as Ben crying or knocking down some blocks, but she always shows good humor and common sense, getting her brother back on the right track in no time. Indeed, only once does Emma show less-than-perfect behavior when she momentarily refuses to share her teddy. These vignettes depicting white, middle-class children do have potential as conversation starters with older siblings in similar situations, but the text isn't realistic or engaging enough to do the handsome format justice. Photo essays for slightly older children that deal more effectively with the same issues include Lasky's A Baby for Max (Scribners, 1984) and Fred Rogers's The New Baby (Putnam, 1985). --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
