"Big Sister" is a very good children's book. The illustrations are very expressive and appealing. The rhymes were very well done, and flowed smoothly and naturally. The story had a wry sense of humour that is sure to amuse adults and children alike, as the big sister details all the ways in which a new baby has disrupted her and her parent's lives. In the end, though, the big sister comes to terms with the changes and reflects upon all the things she will be able to teach her new brother.

I could really relate to the big sister's huge disappointment when she expected to get a new playmate and got a sibling that was definitely not a playmate. Whenever he was getting a new sibling, we told our first born child that he was getting someone with whom he could play. Then each time we brought the new baby home, he was very disgruntled because we brought home 'something' that was definitely NOT the playmate we had promised. This book captures the reality of a new baby for an older sibling beautifully.

I think adults and children will love this book simply for its humour, but an added bonus is its ability to open a discussion about having a new baby in the household. It is a book well worth adding to a child's library and it is not one that a child will tire of quickly. So be prepared to have to read it over and over again.

"Big Sister" is an absolute treat. Geared toward the older sibling dealing with a new baby, the book speaks to that child's frustration and observations with respect to the new sibling. The humorous descriptions of the "Big Sister's" parents and their responses to sleep deprivation are classic. Addressing the issue of an older, only, child becoming a sibling was done without making the "Big Sister" seem to be a spoiled diva. It is obvious Kurt Zimmerman has dealt with the issue in his own family. Only someone who has experienced the trials, tribulation, and joy of an infant could have written the book.

Colorful, charming illustrations enhance the story and help maintain the interest of younger children. The dimension and depth of the pictures sets the Zimmerman books apart from those that use only child-like line drawings.

The rhyming in "Big Sister" is easy to read; it flows smoothly. The humor of the situations is laugh-aloud funny - my grandson, my daughter and I were all laughing as I read the book. My granddaughter just smiled as she listened to the story of a baby who had upended his household in much the same manner she has done to hers. I particularly liked that Kurt Zimmerman was able to incorporate faith into the final page of the book.

Pleasant rhymes (sometimes humorous!) and characters that I can most definitely identify with given I have several children for which the last is a son and I know I've witnessed some of the same kinds of interactions between them at times. Loved it and I will be looking for many more works from this author in the near future!

I loved this book. I thought it was a cute story. It showed why not to be jealous of younger siblings. I would definitely say that siblings from 6-13 would enjoy this book and should read it.

Great rhyming story about a little girl and her new baby brother. The illustrations are really sweet and I know any child who has welcomed a younger sibling into the family will enjoy it.

I bought this for my niece to help her cope with her new cousin. She enjoyed it a lot and even "reads" it to the baby.
