Barfburger Baby, I Was Here First


Barfburger Baby, I Was Here First
By Paula Danziger
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas
G.P. Putnam's Sons, c2004. Unpaged. Picture book.

Poor Jonathon. He loved being the only kid in his family, and then his little brother Daniel arrives and ruins everything. Daniel steals the attention from Mom and Dad and all the visiting relatives and friends. Jonathon hates it! He calls his baby brother some crazy names, like Barfburger, Gasburger, and Snotburger Baby. He also wishes that Daniel would sneeze so hard, it'd cover everyone in snot and show them he's not that great after all. This book is both silly and thoughtful. For anyone who is dealing with new-sibling issues, "Barfburger Baby" delivers sweet illustrations accompanied by a funny and true to life story.
