Some new-baby books explore the fears and concerns of older siblings, but Keane’s focuses instead on the joy and wonder of it all—sometimes straining credulity: the new baby never cries once, and diapers are delightful. Give to parents hoping to introduce kids to the joy and wonder of a new baby sibling with none of the mess.

Synopsis

A touching picture book about an older sister's unconditional love for her new baby brother

Matisse is a little girl in a big world. Despite her size, she gets to have all sorts of grand adventures, like seeing the big sights of the city, making big messes, and taking big naps when her little body is all tuckered out. But when Matisse meets her baby brother, she realizes that she isn't so little after all- She’s a big sister! And it’s great fun to show this new little person what wonders this big world has in store.
 
With warmth and joy, Claire Keane showcases a gorgeous retro-inspired style to tell this tender tale of unconditional sibling love.


From the Hardcover edition.
