This is a sweet rhyming book about being a big sister. It’s heartwarming and the illustrations are beautiful. Would recommend for anyone ready to be a big sister.
Many books written on siblings focus on the rivalry and adjustment issues when a new sibling enters the family. This one focuses on the family’s love for one another. The soft, gentle illustrations work to enhance the mood. Recommended for any age reader.
I liked the soft touches in this book, both in illustrations and the storyline. This is a necessity in very kids’ library regardless if they have a sibling or not!
This book is perfect for families dealing with difficult situations and also other children to understand someone’s difficult situation. The story is heart touching and illustrations is very nice.
wow, this author has all sorts of books to check out, cool beans … i really enjoy it!! making my way around kiddie books in the KU world. so much more happier, with pics in the KU Amazon world
“Pete the Pig Gets Picked On” is an adorable book about individuality and acceptance. Pete has a very sensitive nose and won’t roll in the stinky slop like the other pigs so the pigs tease him about it.
This book explains in pretty good detail from a child’s perspective what it’s like to have a sibling come early and be in the NICU.It touches on fears without going into much depth, and the story stays light and positive. Cute artwork accompanies the story.
