“Welcome to Your World, Baby” is a story about being a big sister. From helping decorate the new baby’s room, to helping at bath time, to having secret sleepovers, the job of a being a big sister is a very important one!
Cayden: “The baby is coming home from the hospital, like you did when you were a baby Max! Except this baby is a girl and you are a boy.”
Max: “Baby come home.”
Cayden: “There is a lot of pink in that room!”
Cayden: “Why does she say feet smell good and she wants to eat them? Feet don’t smell good!”
Max: “No, no!”
Cayden: “I teach Max ABC’s too, just like she is doing!”
Cayden: “We play dress-up too, but not like princesses!”
Cayden: “Is a drip castle like a sand castle?”
Cayden: “I liked the pictures and my favorite part was when the baby came home from the hospital.”
“Welcome to Your World, Baby” by Brooke Shields would be the perfect book to get for a girl who is going to have a new baby sister. It shows all of the fun things that the two girls could do together and what she is going to have to look forward to. The illustrations in the book are very colorful, eye-catching, and fun! The book is definitely geared towards girls, but still my two sons enjoyed it, and could relate to a lot of the things that the two sisters did together.
