Product Description

As Rose anxiously awaits the birth of the family's new baby, she isn't sure what to expect about her new role as big sister. She isn't sure whether she wants a baby brother or a baby sister; sometimes she isn't sure she wants a new baby at all! But when her new little brother finally arrives, suddenly everything seems just right.

Susanna Leonard Hill's text perfectly captures the excitement and apprehension of children anticipating the arrival of a new baby, and Nicole Rutten's sweet hamster characters make this an ideal story for siblings-to-be.

Kirkus Reviews
"Rutten's watercolor-and-pencil artwork sweetly portrays the bundle of conflicting feelings that is Rose. Her expressive face and body language make her every emotion plain. Brightly colored pictures contrast with the blue-toned illustrations that represent Rose's imaginings. A solid addition to the new-baby shelf."
 
School Library Journal
"Every morning, a young hamster races into her parents' bedroom and asks, 'Is the baby here yet?' and each time they answer, 'Not yet.' Rose can't decide whether she wants a sister or a brother, and at one point she decides that she doesn't want a baby at all, but her mother brings her around to the idea that she'll probably like being a big sister. Dad describes the nurturing that babies require and reminds his daughter that she was once an infant who needed and received loving care, too. When a brother is born, she carefully holds him, marvels at how tiny he is, and sings to him until he falls asleep in her arms. The book ends neatly with Rose's parents asking if her arms are tired and she replies, 'Not yet.' Hill presents adults who encourage their daughter to process her feelings and come to her own conclusions. The narrative's pacing and structure are ideal, with the story and life lessons beginning on Monday and ending on Friday. Rutten's cheery watercolor illustrations, depicting the hamsters' life in their cozy country cottage and later in the hospital, are infused with subtle, appropriate humor. With its thoughtful text and playful art, this book gently helps older siblings confidently adjust to their new roles."
