"The New Baby series from Child's Play is spot on accurate. ... watercolors and graphite or grease pencil outlines are friendly and exuberant."-- (04/01/2011)
"These four books in the New Baby series are just right for toddlers awaiting and adjusting to the birth of a new sibling. They cover pregnancy, welcoming the baby, and learning to play and live together. ... The multiracial families are always smiling and gentle. Colorful artwork fills each page. The writing is clear, conversational, and full of common situations."-- (04/01/2011)
A wonderful book to share with toddlers and young children. Waiting for the arrival of a new sibling can be an exciting and sometimes confusing time, but there is so much that needs to be done, and Mum needs some help. The pictures are colourful and the text offers questions that promote conversation, which allow the emotions of having a new baby to be explored. A lovely book to share one-to-one with your child - perfect for both early years settings and parents alike.-- (09/01/2009)

I love that there are no references to the toddler giving up a crib (or anything besides old baby clothes). Unlike many other sibling prep books, there are no unflattering comparisons between the baby and the toddler. My daughter still sleeps in a crib and likes it, so I've been frustrated by the number of books out there that assume one crib per family, or that the toddler must "graduate" in order to make way for baby.
The pictures are clear, but the kids clothes and hair is drawn in such a way that any child (boy or girl) can relate to being that child.
Thanks to this book, my 2 year old understood that dropping her off with grandma and grandpa meant Mommy and Dadddy were going to get the baby out of Mommy’s tummy.
Great price for a kids book. However, like all kids books, this book isn’t immune to 2yo tough handling. Although pages themselves are quite thick and won’t tear, the spine of the book suffers under the strain of child handling(mauling).
Overall good book. Just extra nitpicking in case it matters to you:
-- One of the lines is about whether the baby is a boy or girl. We don't think this is relevant. It is a baby. That's what matters. Plus you might not know/not want to know/etc.
-- One of the pages shows the parents leaving for the hospital for delivery while the kid stays with grandma. This works for us, but likely others will have different arrangments.

This version is a lovely book, with a gender-indeterminate child which makes it very flexible. Illustrations by Annie Kubler just naturally appeal to toddlers (all her books are winners with my children), and the pictures illustrate real life before and after baby in a way toddlers will easily recognise. We are still reading it 18 months after the baby was born!
