KIRKUS REVIEW

From the point of view of toddler brother Sam, a straightforward fictionalization of the events in a baby's life from just before birth to her first birthday--when she's on the verge of walking, can turn pages without tearing them, and is beginning to talk. Sam is allowed to hold Poppy and help with her care, like feeding her; although he is shown feeling slightly anxious or annoyed when she becomes mobile and gets into his toys, there is little hint of sibling rivalry here. Glowing, generous-sized illustrations showing an affectionate, unsentimentalized family are the book's best feature. Attractive, useful, but unexceptional.
