Anyway, I didn't like the book at all. Here is why:
*No father figure in the book. This may be OK for some people.
*At one point, the little boy in the book even asked his mom: "Why do we have to have a baby, can't it just go away?", and the mom doesn't talk to him about the joys it will bring to the family, or that a baby is a good thing.
*All it is is the boy whining and upset that he doesn't want a sibling. I expected at the end that it was this joyous event that the baby came and the little boy was happy. They don't even say if the baby was a boy or girl.
This is a book about a self-absorbed child wondering what the coming baby will be when it grows up, and whining about the baby. It doesn't teach or explain anything.
In the story you will 'hear" the brother's comments about what he thinks about as the day draws closer and closer to his new sibling arriving. You will see how the big brother's imagination takes off in many directions as he and his mom have discussions. He shows his curiosity.
The author's sensitivity to the issue of a new sibling is evident as you proceed through the story. I love the last page in this book. As the older brother and grandpa are visiting the baby in the hospital , they have a discussion. The little boy says: we're going to love the baby, aren't we?
*I received this for review - all opinions are my own*

This book was SO WEIRD. I made up my own words to it because it was so negative. I gave it away because I didn't really care for it. I absolutely adored the pictures though. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Whitney O.

This book is strange. There is no dad present in the entire book and it talks about giving the baby back because they don't need it. I would spend the money elsewhere.Published 15 months ago by Hannah E Bloms

You can rewrite the dialog because preschoolers can't read. I do this all the time. If the illustrations are super, just make up your own story but write it in so you can remember... Read morePublished 23 months ago by susan lord
