KIRKUS REVIEW

 A book for expectant siblings that helps take the mystery and anxiety out of mother's absence when a new baby is born. Many other fine books explain the mechanics of gestation and childbirth; this one briefly explains hospital routines after birth and emphasizes the positive features of the separation: keeping in touch by telephone, visiting the mother's hospital room, seeing the babies in the nursery, and maybe even holding the newborn sibling. The text is addressed directly to young readers, with plenty of full- color photos showing several different happy families--some with fathers present--at a busy urban hospital. The use of color photos is a happy choice for this upbeat subject, but several of the scenes are blurred, rendering some of the participants slightly fuzzy. (Picture book/nonfiction. 3-6)
