JUDY'S BABY by Sally Scott

Email this review


The problem of the new baby is successfully handled here in an easy reading book which has enough incident to appeal even to children who have no new baby problems. Judy is generally dissatisfied with life, and finds excuses to blame things on the new baby. Her mother never has time for her; she has to stay home to help when she wants to play. But after one puzzling day, with some conflicting new ideas, Judy begins to see she has a share in the baby and can be mother's helper too. The attitude of a schoolmate towards her baby sister plays its part. The author has been very skillful in handling the bewilderment and hurt and fear. Easy to read type and vocabulary. Lots of black and white pictures by Jane Toan. A book that can be given to children (unlike David's Bad Day).
