It's obviously possible that our transition to sibling hood would have been just as smooth without this book, but we have had the easiest and best time with it even now that my children are 2.5 and 4.5 years old, and I really feel that it was at least in part due to how this book introduced and prepared my oldest for the idea of being a big brother! When reading this book I used my son's first name ("Someone is new at Matthew's house!") as well as the first name of his sister-to-be ("It's Baby Claire! Matthew is a Big Brother now!"). My kids are, knock on wood, best friends and have been since birth. Well - it was a tiny bit rough the very first week, until my husband kicked me and my son out and made us go get ice cream on our own. I recommend doing that too :)
I would definitely recommend this book for a younger child who is soon to be a big brother.
The illustrations are colorful and sweet. The sentences are short and easy for a two year old to understand.
What we like most about this book is the fact that it sheds positive light on getting a sibling. It highlights all the wonderful things that a "big kid" can do that a new baby can't such as eat "pizza and apples and ice cream" and play. Another facet of the book that we enjoy is that it mentions that one should "ask Mommy" before holding the baby. We appreciated that safety-oriented tidbit. It also ends with the mention that "I'm the only me in the whole world" and that is what makes me special to Mommy and Daddy. Quite a bit of thinking went into this little book to help foster self-confidence and good feelings in the older sibling.
Need fact or science-based info on pregnancy, labor and delivery for your child? It isn't in this book. Want to introduce breastfeeding to your child? Not here either. The baby gets bottle fed.
The only time my toddler seems to grasp the concept that our family is getting bigger is when we talk about it after reading this book. He requests that we read it to him at bedtime. We intend on using other copies as shower gifts for our friends.
It's amazing how young toddlers can comprehend simple well written books like this. Also love board books!
