Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 A standout original title among new-baby picture books. During show-and-tell in kindergarten class, soon-to-be big brother Samuel blurts out, I'm having a baby! Samuel's friend Marcel says he's having a baby, too. Soon, Carolee and Sophie are having twins and triplets. By the end of the week, all of the students' shirts are bulging with dolls, puppies, dinosaurs, and even a truck. Samuel is a little worried about stinky diapers and broken toys, but demonstrating the proper diapering and cradling techniques to his classmates helps calm his nerves. Following a week of spring break, Samuel brings his new sister to class, rocking her to sleep as the other kids follow suit with their own bundles of joy. Elkin makes great use of humor and dialogue in the classroom. 'I'm not having a baby,' said Terri....'I'm having a puppy.' Wummer's pencil and watercolor illustrations effectively utilize facial expressions to communicate voice and personality. A multiethnic group of children and an African-American teacher make this title perfect for today's diverse classrooms. By briefly mentioning common sibling worries and complaints within the narrative, Elkin opens the door to discussing these topics without losing the humorous atmosphere. Soon-to-be older siblings will giggle at baby dump trucks, but will also find comfort in Samuel's eventual conclusion that his baby is perfect. Richelle Roth, Boone County Public Library, KY

A touching, funny, heartwarming story for children of all ages that have experienced a new sibling in the family. Mark has done a superb job capturing children's feelings, behaviors, and comments as well as the teacher's handling of these emotions. A must for every family library!

Samuel's Baby is one of the most outstanding children's books that I've read to my kids. My wife just gave birth to our 2nd child, and this book has become an instant classic for our older, four-year-old son. I recommend Samuel's Baby in the strongest terms for any family with children.
