The Lovereading4Kids comment

This lively, cheerful picture book takes a positive look at one of the changes the arrival of a new baby can bring. ‘There’s a new baby now, I’m not the baby any more’, says the little girl who narrates the story. Sometimes she misses being the littlest, and tries to squeeze into her old baby clothes, now passed on to her new brother; but Mummy and Daddy reminder her how much they love their big girl, and she lists all the great things that big girls can do, from using the potty to playing with friends and enjoying a bedtime story. The little girl’s voice rings out loud and clear and it’s a great book for sharing with lots for adults and children to discuss together. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Anthea Simmons is a vicar’s daughter and the eldest of six children. She grew up in Cornwall where she was pony and book-mad. After a highly-successful City career, she ‘retired’ to the country to bring up her son, ride, garden, write, paint and teach. More recently she has become involved in a social enterprise dedicated to improving diversity and inclusion in the UK’s board rooms through an apprenticeship scheme. This works brings her into contact with people from all backgrounds and has sharpened her awareness of the need for access to opportunity. She lives in East Devon with (in the holidays) her Chemistry undergraduate son Henry, and her polydactyl ginger cat, Caramac.
