Editorial Reviews

Review

By Big Al's Books & Pals:

"... a good story, and well suited to its purpose of initiating conversation with a younger child with a new sibling on the way. Because the illustrations are in color, this is ideal for a Kindle Fire or other tablet computer with a Kindle app; however, when viewed on my Kindle keyboard, the illustrations still looked good, even though in grayscale, and the text was easy to read."

cute little book about all a big brothers questions concerning the little siter his mother says lives in her tummy. nice illustrations too. i especially like the look on the mother`s face when her water breaks. my complaint is that the parents never answer brothers questions honestly.
I bought this book here from amazon it even shows the date purchased at the top of the book page, but for some reason it does not show as an amazon verified purchase.

This is a cute little book. I am sure a lot of you out there can relate to having a child asking questions about, "Why is Mommy's tummy getting so big?" along with everything else about the pregnancy. This book fits exactly this scenario with colorful illustration full of character and simple, yet humorous dialog. Very sweet and heartful story.

Hey, Little Sister by Karin Cox takes a young boy's perspective on his mother's pregnancy. I read many such books to my oldest son while we awaited the arrival of his younger brother, and this one is one of the best.

The most important thing that this book does is leave much of the "technical" information to the parents to discuss. Many other books in this area provide information or ask questions that not all parents are ready or willing to discuss with their child or children. This also leaves this book open to a much larger audience because it can be tailored specifically to the developmental readiness of the particular child.

While some may see it as a problem that Zac's questions are never answered, I see this as a big bonus to parents. There is no need to contradict information in the book and it leaves room for parents to provide the information they see fit.

I also enjoyed, and so did my oldest, the fun way that the older sibling talks to his sister throughout the story. When we were awaiting the arrival of his younger brother, I encouraged my son to talk to his brother just as Zac does in this story.

I highly recommend this for children from around 3 into kindergarten as they wait to become older siblings.

This book is great to introduce a toddler (age 3) to a new baby to come.
It's simple. Not too many details. But, enough to help the toddler get ready for the new baby.
Very well written and great pictures.

Our kids laughed on almost every page and they especially liked the touching end of the book. The artwork is cute too. Really a great kids book. I'd love to see more short stories from this author.

When my nine year-old granddaughter ("The Princess")was visiting and wanted something to read, I downloaded Hey Little Sister to my Kindle Fire and suggested she read it to her four year-old sister. Then I quizzed her on how it had gone.

Although a short book (in adult terms), I thought it was a good indication that her younger sister actually sat still for the full book. When asked, The Princess liked the story, liked all the illustrations with one exception (she wasn't too keen on one involving an accident the Mother in the story had), and was quick to give it a letter grade of "B" on an A, B, C, D, F grading scale.

Although The Princess has (obviously) already been through the experience, when I read the book later, I agreed with her, that it was a good story, and well suited to its purpose of initiating conversation with a younger child with a new sibling on the way.
Because the illustrations are in color, this is ideal for a Kindle Fire or other tablet computer with a Kindle app; however, when viewed on my Kindle keyboard, the illustrations still looked good, even though in grayscale, and the text was easy to read.

This is a good book for a child expecting a new little brother or sister. Mommy explains how the baby is living in her belly. I love the illustration, very good job. The title and cover pulled me in. I liked when the son played doctor and help his mommy. Thanks for writing such a good book!

At first glance, this is like many other children's books about pregnancy and childbirth. Except that it's not. Ms. Cox really captured the essence of the subject from the viewpoint of a child. many people try to get this right and fail, but she nailed it. There is a whole 'nuther layer of nuance in the books, with humor for the target age group masking humor for the adult reading it. Well done!
