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!

Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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

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.

Georgie Birkett completed her degree in Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Brighton in 1996. She has since illustrated many books published all over the world and in 2008 she won the Best Baby Book 2008 in the Booktrust Early Years Awards for Is This My Nose? (Red Fox). She now lives in Lewes, East Sussex, with her husband, David, and sons, Jack and Albert.
