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

When you are big, you're not the baby any more, but sometimes you want to do the baby things you used to do before! In this funny journey of discovery, one little girl decides to try out being a baby again, but discovers it is more fun being the big sister of the family.

This lively, cheerful picture book takes a positive look at one of the changes the arrival of a new baby can bring. -- Andrea Reece * Lovereading4Kids *

A little girl faces a big reality: there's a new baby in the house, and her status has changed... The pastel illustrations and gentle rhymes work to reassure young readers, until the girl, at last, starts to feel a sort of superior compassion for her helpless baby brother. * Booklist *

The combination of Anthea Simmons gently humorous rhyming words and Georgie Birkett's adorable scenes of family life is a total delight. * Red Reading Hub *'
