The Lovereading4Kids comment

Older siblings everywhere will love this story of the trials, tribulations and absolute joy that a baby brother brings! This baby is so very new that he can’t do very much at all: he can’t run and he can’t climb trees; he can’t say thank you and he can’t say please; he takes things and he breaks things (by mistake mum says...). But, the things he can do are so very sweet and so very special that everyone knows he is the best, best baby in the world!


Best, Best Baby! by Anthea Simmons, Georgie Birkett

A big sister learns that although her baby brother can be very annoying and there are lots of things that he can't do yet, he's still the best, best baby that a sister ever had!

From the creators of Share! comes a story all about toddler sibling rivalry which all those with young children will empathize with. Bold, colourful illustrations bring the characters to life.


A very sweet and accessible take on a familiar issue. -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller
