Good message (explicitly the opposite of Babies are Boring; take that, Yaletown yuppies!), some flaps to open. Just another day at the baby publishing house. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679884637, Board book)

Big brother Arthur remembers how it was when his sister D.W. was first born. Boring. But just at first. Then they started having fun. Reminiscing about playing peek-a-boo, spitting up, and learning the alphabet and nursery rhymes, Arthur helps D.W. get used to the idea of another brand-new baby in the house.

Whether they've just become big siblings for the first time or have a slew of sisters and brothers crawling around underfoot, young readers will love lifting the flaps to learn about what to expect with a new baby. Pretty soon, they may even embrace their role, when they start introducing Sis or Junior to the delights of Humpty Dumpty, the ABCs, and dress-up. Most importantly, readers will be reminded that they are still loved, even if the baby seems to be getting an awful lot of attention.

Marc Brown, creator of the world's favorite aardvark, Arthur (Arthur's New Puppy, Arthur's Birthday), offers a lighthearted, sensitive, and humorous perspective on the sometimes traumatic new-baby event. With more than 40 flaps to lift, including alphabet blocks (p is for pacifier, n is for night-light) and baby gifts, as well as holes to make wiggling finger rabbit ears, this latest in the Arthur series is a sweet look at sibling love. (Preschool to age 7) --Emilie Coulter

This lift-the-flap book shows older siblings what to expect from a new baby, how to play with baby, and that they are still loved too.
