Little Miss, Big Sis by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

 Published by HarperCollins

Summary: Little Miss is excited to be a big sis. Told entirely in brief rhyming couplets (“Sleep. Fuss. Eat. Repeat.”), the story follows Little Miss from the revelation of the big news through the first year or so of the new baby’s life. Little Miss proves to be a fabulous big sister, helping to stop tears and for the most part ignore little annoyances as the baby gets old enough to play. It looks like many happy years ahead as the book ends with a picture of Little Miss passing a love note from her top bunk to the baby on the bottom one.

Pros: Rosenthal and Reynolds team up for another winning picture book, putting a rosy spin on getting a new baby in the house.

Cons: The book doesn’t explore any of the less positive feelings associated with a new baby in the house.
