Editorial Reviews

Review

"These four books in the New Baby series are just right for toddlers awaiting and adjusting to the birth of a new sibling. They cover pregnancy, welcoming the baby, and learning to play and live together. ... The multiracial families are always smiling and gentle. Colorful artwork fills each page. The writing is clear, conversational, and full of common situations." School Library Journal 20110401 "The New Baby series from Child's Play is spot on accurate. ... watercolors and graphite or grease pencil outlines are friendly and exuberant." Readertotz blog 20110401 --School Library Journal

My 26-month-old son LOVES this book. Our new baby is still a few months away, so I can't vouch for how well this will help my son adjust. But I can vouch for what a great book it is! It's one of my son's all-time favorites. It has made him very, very interested in babies, which is a wonderful place to be right now. There are indeed both positive and negative moments with baby, but mostly positive. The "negative" vignettes are actually what made my son interested in babies generally -- a baby pulling hair, moving a toy car, making noise. My son is fascinated by this. He finds it funny and intriguing, and it seems to make him feel like babies are worth getting to know. These moments are more than balanced out by really sweet, positive moments that my son loves to talk about as well -- entertaining a baby with a "silly dance," two siblings in the tub, cuddling up with a book. And there are also some lovely moments where the author shows time with just the parents and older child, which my son loves to talk about as well. To me, this book seems as close as I'll be able to get to having a really honest talk with my son about the new baby: There will be some tough moments, but it's all completely worth it, and we'll love our first child just as much as ever.

As others have noted, both kids in the book could be of any gender. The pictures are bright and engaging, with lots of familiar objects to talk about. Each page has a large picture, with a brief quote underneath from the toddler narrator. These are jumping points for us to talk about the pictures, situations, and how everyone is feeling. I can also highly recommend the other books in this series --

Having kids 17 months apart is hard on the older sibling. This series helped me talk to my 17 months old about what was going to happen. She loves every single one of the four books. They are great to just talk since they really don't have a story. I bought the expecting one while pregnant and right away purchased the other three. Now my baby is three months and we rarely read the expecting one, my daughter loves the "my new baby" which is the stage we are at now... Soon we will move to the next one. They are in chronological order according to developmental stage of the baby... From being expecting, to new born, to just a couple months, to almost a year. I highly recommend them!

I have all 4 books from this series. And I agree with the reviewer Sunderi that this book is a little negative, hence requiring a little parental 'tweaking' in the way I present it to my toddler. For instance, on page 2, the elder sibling has 'angry eyebrows' as baby tugs on her hair. Here, it's written: "Ouch! Don't do that! Why is Baby laughing?" When juxtaposed this way, it's suggested that babies take pleasure in inflicting hurt. And instead of there being some kind of suggestion that babies instinctively clutch their fists tightly, the next page flips to a completely different scene. In another book I own, 'Betsy's Baby Brother' by Gunilla Wolde, baby brother grabs a handful of Betsy's hair and tugs very hard too, but there is resolution when 'Mommy explains that babies love to grab at everything with their tiny little fingers'. There's no need for pity for the elder sibling or admonition of the baby, just a quick explanation before moving on.

To support the earlier review that this book was a touch negative, here are more examples. On page 2: elder sibling frowns when baby tugs at hair. On page 4, elder sibling plugs ears with fingers (worried eyebrows, frustrated frown): 'Oh no, the baby's shouting!' On page 5, elder sibling sits, beady-eyed, with back to her friend and the baby with resentful frown and folded arms: 'Baby likes my friend more. What about me?' On page 6, baby crawls to pick up a doll; elder sibling and friend say: 'Oh no! We don't want you to move that.' On page 7, baby spits out green mush: 'What's the matter? Don't you like this?'

I'm not against negative portrayals - they are accurate portrayals of infant behaviour - just the lack of explanation or redirection necessary at a toddler sibling's level.

I love this series of books for preparing a child for a new sibling. (We have 3 of the 4.) This particular book, though, is a little negative. I don't mind the idea of preparing the child for the fact that they may be less than 100% thrilled with the new baby, but I feel like there is a LOT of that in this book.

Generally, I like the series, and even this book, but just be prepared that this is a bit less positive than the others.

This series of books are really cute, are great for toddlers as the pages cannot be ripped, and most of the illustrations could be a boy or girl so you can speak more directly to your child about imagining their particular situation. We like them a lot and my daughter liked them at bedtime for several weeks before we moved on.

This book is a little strange, at least for us. The pictures are vibrant and cute, so my toddler loves that, but the words that go with it are statements and questions. I usually make up my own words for her to try and understand the dynamics of her and her new sibling.
