Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Peter is a baby bear and can’t do all the wonderful things his older sister does. He cries all the time, can’t dance ballet, can’t pronounce the French words Grandma likes to teach, and puts just about everything in his mouth. His older sister’s frustration at having a little brother is apparent, but by the end of the story, as the family prepares to celebrate Peter’s first birthday, her attitude softens as she realizes that, one of these days, he will grow up to become a fun playmate. This heartwarming story about an older sibling adjusting to a new baby in the house is accompanied by illustrations (reminiscent of Frank Asch’s Moonbear books) rendered in adorably flat gouache on watercolor paper, with blocks of solid color and ample white space to emphasize the warmth. A glossary of French terms is included at the beginning of this simple, effective book. Pair this with Laura Numeroff’s What Brothers Do Best/What Sisters Do Best (2009). Grades 1-3. --Linda Sawyer

In Peter is Just a Baby, the older sister relates all the things that she can do that Peter can't like using big words, learning French, and dancing. The story is cute as it leads up to Peter's first birthday and the sister hoping that Peter will now be able to do some of the things that she can do.

I love the way this book is illustrated. The characters are bears and the illustrations are soft. The pictures match the text very well and flow easily on the pages. Some of the pages have several smaller pictures illustrating different activities while other pages have one large picture. This makes the book more visually interesting than having one large picture on each page and it also allows for more activities to be shown. The book has really nice use of white space for the text as well. Some picture books are difficult to read if the text is placed directly over the illustration but this book avoids that issue completely. The text also flows well around the pictures which keeps the narrative moving visually.

Although there is a glossary in the front of the book with the French terms including pronunciation and definition, I didn't care for the use of French throughout the text. I took French in high school and am somewhat comfortable with the pronunciations but I can see the foreign words being a turn off to parents who are not familiar with the language. I know I don't like reading a story to my daughter if I am uncertain of how to pronounce some of the words. This is really the only thing that I didn't enjoy about this book though.

This book is intended for first born girls who have a baby brother. Funny thing is, our daughter AND her baby brother who is now 3 love the book. It intermingles French words throughout, which our son enjoys (ice cream "a la mode" - who can't get excited right?). It's an entertaining story and very nicely illustrated. I don't get the negative review posted, you're thinking too much. I saw this while looking for other books by the author to order....

So glad I previewed this one before reading it to my daughter. It's all about how the baby can't do anything fun like the older sister can. She even says she wished for a sister, not a brother. The closest this book gets to positive feelings towards the baby is when she hopes that after he turns 1, he'll be able to do some of the things she does, which of course, won't happen (she's 6). Even if your older child is dealing with negative feelings (jealousy, confusion) don't get this one - it offers nothing positive.
