I'm a Big Sister by Joanna Cole

With an author's note about what big siblings need-extra guidance, reassurance, love-and sweet, engaging artwork, it's no wonder that nearly 4 million families have chosen I'm a Big Sister and its companion book, I'm a Big Brother, to prepare their young ones for their first big transition. Someone new is at our house, begins this loving, reassuring celebration of brotherhood from trusted author Joanna Cole. Told through the eyes of a new older sister, this simple story lays out all the good things about being an older sibling, and just how exciting welcoming a new member to the family can be.


I'm a Big Sister and I'm a Big Brother are bestsellers and it's clear why. They empower first-time older siblings by filling them in on their new role: Mommy and Daddy's helper with the new baby. ( The Best Books for Soon-to-Be Big Brothers and Sisters ) -- Brightly
