You're Getting a Baby Sister!

Illustrated by: Sam Williams
For Ages: 2 - 5
A baby sister is on the way! Older siblings will love this board book primer on how to receive their new addition.

A baby sister is joining the family! That’s great news, but older siblings may be a bit uncertain. Fortunately for them, this rhyming board book addresses what to expect: “Your sister will drool. She will smell. She will scream. She just might pull your hair. She’ll do things that seem mean.” The text, accompanied by irresistible art from renowned illustrator Sam Williams, also explains how older kids can be role models to their new little sister: “You can be her first teacher. Show her things that you know. Give her patience and love, she’s just starting to grow.” At the back of the book, there’s even designated space for older siblings to write about their new baby sister.

This book is a great gift for the new big brother or big sister to be! And a great gift for parents, too!
