This is a fabulous book and I would love to have a copy to read over and over again with my toddler as she is learning everyday how to be a good big sister. Sometimes I see a bit of the jealous as she is uncertain of her new role and trying to figure out how we all fit in. We try very hard to make sure she gets the praise when she helps out and show her how important being a helper and big sister really is for her. Sometimes it is easy to get carried away ohhing and ahhing and it’s great to have books like this that help reinforce how important she is to the family as a whole.

This is a great resource and I really cannot wait to see a real copy. I read this via NetGalley as an ecopy on loan through ADE.
