Summary
Growing Up Just Got Easier...

With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to children and parents as they tackle life's first experiences together.

Congratulations! The new baby you've spent the last nine months preparing for has finally arrived. Although you may be prepared and thrilled, what about your older child? As your preschooler makes the transition from only child to older sibling, he or she will be excited, curious, and somewhat anxious about the little bundle you've brought home. We're here to help you answer your child's questions about what new babies look like, what they do and don't do, and what having one around the house will really be like.

Have fun!

Heidi and Angus

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 2-5. One of the coauthors of the indispensable What to Expect When You're Expecting (1996) now authors a series called What to Expect Kids, of which this title is a part. The subject is preparing your first child for when a new sibling joins the family. A friendly dog named Angus leads readers through ten questions that frame the information. Questions such as "What do new babies eat?" and "Why do new babies cry so much?" receive a double-page spread, complete with colorful illustrations and kid-friendly ideas marked with a paw print. Murkoff's answers are gentle and developmentally appropriate. In the excellent spread "Can I play with the baby?" She lays out three rules for playing with a baby and then suggests that an older sibling "talk to the baby in different voices (squeaky, soft, high, low) and see what the baby seems to like best." This book succeeds on many levels, but most importantly, it allows a parent and child to have a reassuring conversation during a time of great change. --Kathy Broderick"
