Amazing! Wonderful! I love this ‘big sister’ book and I’ve read quite a few. This is my favorite. The simple Peter H. Reynolds illustrations are delightful as per usual. Rhyming text from Amy Krouse Rosenthal is enlightening and covers more than just the initial excitement and then chaos. Every big sister should get this book!
