KIRKUS REVIEW

A reassuring mini-encyclopedia of what life is like with a new baby addresses its audience of only slightly older siblings with enthusiastic cheer. From what babies look like when they are born, to what babies do for fun, each page features illustrations and explanations that can help children become prepared for the new addition in their lives, whether it’s a sibling, cousin, or friend. Lasky offers suggestions in each section on helping as well as how to interact with this newcomer, including words of encouragement to help in the difficult times. Sweet and simple pictures feature all things baby, including diapering, feeding, bathing, and playing with babies. Spot illustrations use balloon dialogue to add realism and humor. A final page explains that even though babies are “sticky, icky, and slimy, with bananas behind their ears,” they are only babies for a little while. Altogether as charming as a clean and smiling infant. (Picture book. 3-7)
