I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books. This review includes my thoughts on the book, as suitable for children, as well as opinions and thoughts from my two oldest “Baby Girls” (ages 10 and 4) aka the BGs.
One Line: An adorable and funny read. Perfect for new siblings.
This book was just too cute and funny. I love books that feature siblings. Of course this would’ve been even better if it featured sisters since I have all girls, but it’s nice to see a variety every now and then since I tend to only buy books featuring girls, when it comes to sibling books, for them. The concept was cute as it’s true how we all think every miniscule thing a baby does is so awe-inspiring, even though anyone (like an older sibling) can do that and much more with ease. The illustrations are very adorable and comical. I can see this easily appealing to kids of all ages and my kids definitely got a kick out of it. They both loved the adorable baby in it. If I come across the need to get something for a child having a new sibling, this will definitely been one of my top choices.
Thoughts from BG1: I think it’s cute. I would recommend it to kids with siblings that are younger. I loved reading the “big brother” parts with my mom and looking at the cute pictures.
Thoughts from BG2: Aw, I wanna take the baby! *hugs the book*
