KIRKUS REVIEW

Any mother who asks her first-born ""How would you like to have a little brother or sister?"" deserves the answer, and any parents who encourage big sister to believe that Mother ""made"" the new baby especially for her benefit are heading for a big credibility gap. In between, there's the long wait, the morning when Grandma appears instead of Mommy, the day when that baby arrives red-faced, and the very obvious application of child psychology to sister Jenny's ego. It's hard to tell how old Jenny is (some of the sketches show her as a subteen midget) but most youngsters will recognize themselves more readily in Frances (A Baby Sister for...) anyhow--she may be a badger but nobody pulls the wool over her eyes.
