Brand-New Baby Blues by Kathi Appelt

Brand-New Baby Blues
by Kathi Appelt
Illustrated by Kelly Murphy
Harper: 2009: Unpaged

Life can be tough when a new baby comes to your house and takes away all the attention that is usually yours. This story is a typical story of a jealous sibling that doesn’t like her little brother, but learns that maybe he isn’t half bad. The story is told in a cute rhyme which some very creative words, including a dirty diaper that’s yabba dabba pew! This is a fantastic book to read to children who are jealous of their new sibling or who may be getting a new sibling soon.
