Reviews - What do customers think about The New Baby (Paperstar)?
Great book by Mr. Rogers Sep 12, 2007
Mr. Rogers creates a great book for young children who've recently become big sisters or brothers. There is a fair representation of some of the things big siblings might be feeling especially about sharing their parents. The color photos are good, but the clothing everyone wears is dated, fortunately little ones don't mind when you read it with them. This is a really good book for new big siblings.
Good description of family changes Jan 15, 2006
As one might expect from a book authored by Fred Rogers, this is a sensitive and frank account of changes a family undergoes with the arrival of a newborn.
A Great Book for Discussing a Sibling's Feelings Toward a New Baby Sep 21, 2005
The New Baby is a book that discusses the feelings that older siblings can have toward a new baby. In the typically simple, direct style that Mr. Rogers uses on Mister Roger's Neighborhood, Fred Rogers helps a child understand that both the baby and he/she are special. He also offers the assurance that parents have enough love for every child in the family.
The book has warm photographs of family members interacting with babies. These are useful in discussing what it will be like to have a baby in the house. I think this is an excellent book to read with children who are soon-to-be brothers or sisters.
great gift book Oct 25, 2001
We received this book as a gift when we were expecting our second child. It is a great book for parents to read to very young children who are expecting their first siblings. The only drawback is the dated pictures. If they were updated, it would be flawless!
Wonderful book! Apr 17, 2001
This book is a wonderful way to help an older sibling prepare for, and adjust to, a new baby. And as the baby gets older, she or he too will enjoy the interesting photgraphs of family members working and sharing together. It's a great book.
