A new addition to the family affects everyone. I think Woodson does a great job capturing the feeling an only child gets when she find out there's a new baby on the way. ( )

A little girl is not too happy about the impending arrival of her baby brother or sister. She is upset with everyone around her asking about the baby and worrying about the baby. Her mother assures her that she will miss the time where it will be just the two of them.

this book is a great way to help introduce a new baby into a family who already has a child. adding a new member to the family is a big transition for children and often one that they cant fully understand. I would recommend this book to any who is having their second child. ( )

Gia is not happy that her mother is having a "ding-dang" baby. She feels that all the attention is being taken away from her and that she is losing her mother. The only thing that can be agreed on is the love of Pecan Pie.

I think this book is important because it recognizes a struggle that a lot of children have the they gain a sibling. It allows them to see that they are not alone and gives them skills to cope with the adjustment of getting a sibling.
