Publisher: Clarion

A warm--but unsentimental--story about the excitement, anticipation, and anxieties experienced by a first-grade class whose teacher has a baby during the school year. The children's questions and comments, the teacher's good-humored responses, and the way this event becomes a focus for activities make not only a good story but an excellent set of lesson plans for pregnant teachers! The watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the postures, moods, and expressions of the children and the liveliness of their classroom. (Picture book. 5-8)
