Books for Big Sister or Brother, The New Baby by Mayer

The New Baby by Mercer Mayer

This book from the classic Little Critter series focuses on life after the new baby has arrived. It relays the frustration of the new big brother, who wants to crack up his newborn sister with jokes, entertain her with stories, and make her smile - when all she does is cry. While the new baby is not an instant playmate, he learns she will grow into one with every passing week.

Recommended Ages: 4-8
