A father tells his small daughter the story of how she reacted to her newborn baby brother from the moment she first saw him in the hospital through his first day at home. At first, the baby seemed strange to her because he slept a lot, cried a lot, and had no teeth. But once she realized the baby wasn’t going to take her place in the family, she warmed up to the idea of being a big sister. A second-person narrative is accompanied by marvelously realistic, often life-size oil pastel illustrations. (Ages 3-5)
