5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction for small children..., January 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I'm a Big Brother (Hardcover)
Our 2 1/2 year old has really taken to this book--it's perfectly age appropriate. It is NOT wordy, like one negative review said. 2-3 simple, short sentences per two page spreads is not wordy for a two year old. The pictures are simple and it addresses how a baby cannot do the same things as a big boy--walk, talk, eat pizza, etc. It has a very positive tone and talks about all the nice things a big brother can do for a new (genderless, so it works for everyone) baby; i.e. sing a song, hold gently after asking Mommy, helping Daddy with diaper, keeping the baby warm and cozy.

One negative review complained that the mother doesn't hold the baby at all--that's just not true. It shows her holding the baby on two separate pages to be exact...same as Dad and the Big Brother. It does show the baby in a stroller, so if you think strollers are terrible, I guess you'll dislike that.

I do agree with the complaints that it doesn't address nursing at all. Not many books do--I wish it had one page showing Mom nursing the baby with a simple "Sometimes babies drink milk from Mommy too." along with the bottle. But it only shows a bottle in passing in any case.

If you have an 18 month-3 year old about to be a big brother, this book is a perfect introduction for them. Well worth it!
