This book is about a boy named Luke who asks his parents if he can help with some things around the house, but his parents are too busy getting ready for the new baby to arrive. Luke starts to feel not wanted anymore, so he goes out and finds new parents later realizing that he doesn't enjoy his new parents as much as he thought he would he returns home to his mother and father and realizes that he is still a part of the family even though there will be a new baby soon. This would be a good book for a child between ages 5 and 8 or for a child who has a new bother or sister on the way. i could read this to a group of kids or one on one ( )

A warm watercolor fiction story of a child who imagines a set of new parents after feeling left out while his real parent are too busy with the arrival of a new baby.

"The Newbies" by Peter Catalanotto is a heart warming book. The point of view from this book sets the tone for a intricate story that deals with family bonding. The child in this book is going through a regular day with each specific detail of a day in the life with his family. The author goes to the extent of sharing how the child is made pancakes with bunny ears on it. When parents who are expecting a new born child come to experience what it is like to be a parent, they take the child of this story out for a day to get an idea of what it is actually like. The point of view from the child's perspective truly highlights the areas in which these "Newbies" are not the same as his parents. There is no replacement for family. ( )
