Cameron was a new big brother and was concerned on why his new baby sister was always crying. He would help his parents with his sister like hand stuff to then while changing her diaper, getting the nursing pillow when it was time for his mom to nurse. He was a good helper.

"Why is Sadie Crying?" his father tells him she needs her diaper changed. turned out it was a stinky one and he helps get more wipes. "Why is Sadie Crying?" turns out she is tire and needs a nap.

This is a really good book. The first reason I thought it was good was because it showed readers what a good big brother does. For example, in the book it says “He loved to pat her head, and rub her tummy, and kiss her sweet little toes.” Cameron loved to do those things for his baby sister. Another example of what a good big brother does was “She needs a diaper change.” his dad said. “Do you want to help?” This example shows that good big brothers help out with the needs of the baby. The second reason I thought the book was good was because of the hidden comments in the illustrations. For example, when the baby needed to be changed, in the bottom right corner of the page it said “wetwetwetwetwetwetwetWET”. Another example was when the baby was crying because she was tired in the bottom right corner it said, “(nap) (nap)”. These hidden comments made the pages more interesting and gave the readers something to look for on the next page. The big message of this book was that you should be a good big brother or big sister and when your baby brother or sister is crying you should try to help cheer them up. Cameron wanted to be a good big brother to his little sister Sadie so he did whatever he could to stop her from crying. For example, in the book Sadie would not stop crying so Cameron sat down with her and pat her head gently and she stopped crying. So remembering to be a good big brother or sister is very important no matter what. ( )

“Why is Sadie crying?” Cameron asks, and asks, and asks. While Cameron loves his new baby sister, he does not love her crying. Mom and Dad can quiet Sadie by changing her diaper, feeding her, and singing lullabies, but when all else fails, Cameron takes over. A Good Big Brother can rub tummies and kiss toes to turn a whimper into a smile!

With humor and warmth, New York Times bestselling illustrators Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson delightfully illustrate this fresh, positive, and true-to-life spin on getting a new sibling.

Cameron is always ready to help when his baby sister cries, whether by handing wipes to his father during a diaper change or finding the nursing pillow for his mother, until one day, when no one else can stop Sadie's tears, her big brother succeeds and gets a wonderful reward.… (more)
