Big kids Anna and Oliver give young readers the inside scoop on what to expect when a new baby is expected.
In a fresh picture book/comic style, Ready, Set...Baby offers up a funny, loving, reassuring peek into life as a big brother or sister -- with solid information, kid-friendly humor, and even tips for parents on how to help kids thrive when the new baby arrives.
"Anna, the older of the pair, imparts simple facts such as, 'Moms have a special compartment inside for growing babies.' Oliver, the younger sibling, expresses common emotions including wonder and boredom. While waiting for the baby to arrive, he thinks, 'This is worse than waiting for pizza to be delivered.' The big brother and sister present useful guidance on everything from how to hold a newborn (sit down, cradle its head, speak softly) to diaper changes (it's not that bad) to accepting that infants are not yet equipped to play ('playing with a new baby is like playing with a loaf of bread.')....Lighthearted and funny, this is an ideal book to share with soon-to-be big brothers and sisters." — Kiera Parrott, School Library Journal
