This review is from: What Baby Needs (Sears Children's Library) (Hardcover)
I read this book to my 2 1/2 year old several times a day before/after her new sister was born. It prepared her for the reality of having a baby in the house in a way that other books didn't - that the baby would be sharing our sleeping space, being breastfed, carried in a sling etc. It is very positive (lots of use of "just like YOU did when you were a baby", and "now you are an older child you can...") and she has accepted her new sister (now 6 months old) in the most welcoming, loving way I could have imagined!
