Like the other reviewers, I thought twice before buying this book due to the Americanisms such as Diaper and Mommy, but its incredibly easy to read out in English, and just as relevant. Its a lovely hard cover book with nice glossy pages, so should stand a fair bit of thumbing through. The message through the book is endearing, positive and sweet, and the illustrations are lovely.
I also have 'Pirate Pete' but my 2 year old is more interested in this one.
Don't let the words Mommy and Diaper put you off, the book reads very well, and will be a firm favourite throughout the rest of my pregnancy and into new baby territory!

My 3 year old son loves this book so much , he chooses it every night and cuddles it in bed ! The book says that big brother must ask mummy if he can hold baby ... and the other weekend when we had friends visiting with their baby , he did just that . So he is taking it all in. Very cute book , tells a big brother what he can expect from a new born sibling (i.e. not much aside from
Sleeping , drinking milk and crying !)

We bought our son this in preparation for when our 2nd child arrives (currently 5 months pregnant). He has been really taken with it and it is helping to prepare him that pretty soon we will have a baby at home, but he will have a very special role to play as the big brother. Its a lovely book and emphasises how big, and grown up and special he is and always will be, even though we will also have a baby around soon.

We bought this book to prepare our 3 year old for the arrival of his new sibling - he loved it and it helped to explain what would happen when the baby arrived.

He knows that the baby is too small to do some things and that he has to ask a grown-up if he wants to do something with the baby.

Complaints about the American English used are probably fair (reference to diapers) but as my son can't read I just changed the words used.

I'd highly recommend this book as a starting point for discussing the arrival of a sibling with a young child.

Bit smaller than I expected but the story is nice and good for kids who are experiencing a new baby.
