Pretty book May 17, 2008
Nice book, not sure if it engages my 2-yr old. Great sentiment though. ...Looking for 'new baby' books geared to very young crowd. Haven't found anything super yet.
My daughter took to this book quickly! Jan 6, 2008
We got this book for our 22 month old daughter for Christmas. It is now one of her favorites. I find it quite beautiful as Michael has to learn how to share his mother with his baby sister. It shows how he reacts emotionally and the difficulties involved around sharing, something all children can relate to.
Great for moms with a new baby (and older child) Sep 21, 2007
This is a very touching book to reassure moms and children that life with a new baby means more love to go around. I have bought it for many friends. Those first months with a new baby are definitely a time of adjustment as the new baby needs so much attention and the older child has to wait (or the older child needs a lot of attention and the baby has to wait!) so this book is a nice, subtle reminder that there is always room on mother's lap. The last page definitely brings tears to the eyes!
AWESOME Mar 8, 2007
This is a great book if you have a new baby come into the house. My son and I read this book every night and then he reads it back to me. I would recomment this book highly.
A Keeper! Sep 1, 2006
This is a very sweet and wonderful story about a boy who is rocking on his mother's lap. He gathers all sorts of things from around the room and they continue to rock. When his mom suggests his baby sister join them he isn't thrilled but they all fit and he is happy. I read this story to my group of two year olds and they absolutely love it. We rock back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And we discuss how there really is always room on mom's lap. This story is timeless and enjoyed by Toddlers to Kindergarteners
