I'm a Big Sister

"Someone new is at our house," begins this loving, reassuring celebration of sisterhood from trusted author Joanna Cole. The new person is a baby, and this little girl is curious to explore what being a big sister is all about. Babies, it turns out, can't play with toys yet, and they like to sleep a lot — and this baby also likes looking at her older sister. And even though the baby needs lot of time from the grown-ups, a big sister has a special role to play, too!

Told through the eyes of a new older sister, this simple story lays out all the good things about being an older sibling, and just how exciting welcoming a new member to the family can be. With an author's note about what big siblings need — extra guidance, reassurance, love — and sweet, engaging artwork, it's no wonder that nearly 4 million families have chosen this book to prepare their young ones for their first big transition.

"Cole has successfully captured the youngsters' voices, making it easy for readers to identify with them.... Familiar situations, as well as positive reinforcement of individuality and importance as part of the family, are good reasons to put this book into the hands of children who will soon be older siblings. A concluding 'Note to Parents' in each book offers suggestions on how to communicate with older children about the changes that are coming." — School Library Journal
