Many of the children in my preschool class really love this book. Babies are always a hot topic, because preschool children can usually remember when they were "little", and because someone is always anticipating becoming a big brother or big sister. There is an implied sweet relationship with the grandmother, which children also can relate to, and they love learning the handful of French words. ( )

This is a nice book but I would of liked to see better illustrations. The students in my class enjoyed the story and compared it to when they were little or to there experiences with younger siblings. Overall a nice book but it needs better illustrations.

This tale is great. I loved it and my kids loved it. The only thing it lacked was engrossing illustrations.

It has the feel of a book SERIES that you'd love to read to your kids, and older siblings could identify with (and maybe younger siblings could empathize with).

Highly recommended, especially if the publisher got a different illustrator to re-illustrate the book with more endearing characters. The current illustrations are close, but I found myself wincing at how much better they could be. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802853846, Hardcover)

Peter can't do any of the things that his big sister can. She can leap and skip, but he can only crawl. She only cries for very important things -- like scraping her knee -- but Peter cries all the time. She can use grown-up words and count in French; he can only say "dada" and "baba."

But after all, Peter is just a baby. Though maybe now that he's having his first birthday party, he'll be the sibling his big sister has dreamed of . . .

This charming, light-hearted book is the perfect story for any child adjusting to a younger sibling.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:30 -0400)

A big sister relates some of her accomplishments, which her baby brother is far from able to do.
