Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this lighthearted guide, young siblings Anna and Oliver offer advice and walk readers through common experiences when a new baby is on its way and then joins the family. First, after a flurry of excitement, there's The Big Wait: a whole day passes and then more. When The Big Day! arrives, there's more waiting, until Mom and the baby finally come home from the hospital. In a playful manner, Anna and Oliver share information about activities that will take place (for example, the colossal amount of poop involved, and the adoration the baby will receive) and offer tidbits of advice on how to deal with each. Back matter includes a list of kid-friendly resources and Big Kid Approved tips to help parents achieve a smooth transition when the little one arrives. Softly colored, jaunty cartoon drawings with dialogue bubbles match the cheery tone of the text. A baby with older siblings as enlightened as Anna and Oliver is one lucky baby.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rusch (Electrical Wizard) and Leng (A Family Is a Family Is a Family) assuage readers' anxieties about new arrivals by channeling their advice through two elementary-school-age siblings who have just welcomed a baby to their house. Anna and Oliver star in the book's many vignettes and address readers directly (think House of Cards without the menace), providing frank, this-too-shall-pass answers that reflect the realities of living with a newborn and their own sibling solidarity (displacement issues are barely addressed, even though Anna, who seems older than Oliver, must have felt them when he came along). Several pages are devoted to poop ("We were not prepared for how many times a day our baby would need a diaper change"), and the siblings note that-contrary to what well-meaning adults assert-babies are hardly new playmates. "Playing with a new baby is like playing with a loaf of bread," Anna says. Leng's matter-of-fact, well-observed cartooning, reminiscent of classic family magazines, underscores the book's levelheaded, soothing message: you got this. Ages 4-7.
