Ages- toddler & up
4 stars

This celebration of new life will allow for tender bedtime cuddles everywhere as the book relishes the shared family pleasure of a new baby. This perfect first picture book will allow childen to either think about their own arrival into the world or prepare them for the arrival of a new sibling, as the words and pictures combine to create a world at peace with itself (quoted from Goodreads).

Beautiful water color illustrations paint the perfect picture for this sweet story about welcoming a new baby to the family. I think it's a great book to give to any new parent and toddler or young child who's about to welcome a little baby in their family. It will help kids understand what's going to be happen and what the excitement is all about.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
