About this title


A child eagerly awaits the arrival of a new baby in the family.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-- As a small boy awaits the arrival of his baby sister, he visualizes their very special relationship as playmates--hugging and wrestling, playing games of make-believe, reading stories, swinging, and riding bikes. His dreamy images create a child nearly his own age rather than a tiny infant. Despite his earlier expectations, when she arrives after the long time of waiting, he is delighted. Snuggling with the small baby, he is satisfied just to hold her close and pleased that she is with him at last. Birdseye offers a tender portrait of a preschooler's common concept of a new sibling. The text flows gently and is well paired with Leedy's soft renderings. The delightful illustrations are a departure from the cartoon style found in her other recent books. Here she uses colored pencils and lightly stylized figures to create warm family scenes. Unlike many books on this subject, this one portrays no negative feelings. It can be a good companion to Girard's You Were Born on Your Very First Birthday (Albert Whitman, 1983) which covers the physical aspects of the birth process. For children with mixed feelings, Alexander's When the New Baby Comes, I'm Moving Out (Dial, 1979) addresses anger and jealousy. This idealized view of a new sibling is a good choice for sharing aloud. --Virginia E. Jeschelnig, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH
