Reviews - What do customers think about The Baby Sister (Picture Books)?

Baby Sister  May 20, 2007
I purchased for my daughter to read to her grandchildren. She said they liked it, especially the little one year old boy re his new baby sister.
The Baby Sister  Nov 16, 2005
The Baby Sister is a great book with gorgeous illustrations. The illustrations are very colorful, which attracts the eye of the reader. Tommy, the character of the book, is anticipating the birth of his baby sister. Unlike most youngsters, Tommy is excited and eager for his sister to join the family. He specifically wants a baby sister with a red ribbon in her hair, which I thought was very funny and cute. And what do you know, his wish comes true!
This book would be great for a classroom because students can voice their feelings about the time a baby brother/baby sister came into the family. Some would be able to relate to Tommy, some might not. This is a very family oriented book, which portrays love and care.

Book Review

My little sister by Tommy dePaola is a amazing chindren's book. It is all about this little boy called tommy and how he gets a new and beautiful little baby sister. This book shows many expressions. This book is my favorite children's book ever I liked it so much I read it over and over until it was time to go home from school. I love this book so much and it is all because of the hilarious humor in it. I defiantly recommend this book because I am share you will fall in love with it.
O.K.  Mar 14, 2003
This book had some very good illustrations, but I still think that I've read better Tomie dePaola books. This book is about a little boy named Tommy who is expecting a new brother or sister. Tommy wishes and prays for a new baby sister with a {red ribbon in her hair}. But when Tommy's Nana Fall-River comes to visit, she's not too fond of children knowing how babies are born, and doesn't seem too interested in what's going on at all. All Tommy wants to do is go to the hospital to see his baby sister, but things keep coming up, and he just can't. He begins missing his mom and starts not to listen to what his Nana asks him to do. To find out what happens in the end, you'll have to read the book!

I would recommend this book to people because in it, Tommy learns that even though someone may not be so nice and kind to you, being nice and kind to them in return doesn't hurt anything. Rebelling against the things that people want you to do {especially your parents, won't get you anywhere} That's something that children these days should learn. So even though I didn't think that this was one of his best books, it still has a good message to children

One of my son's favorites!  Jun 7, 2001
My two-year-old absolutely loves this book. Unlike most of the other good books for expectant siblings, this book doesn't discuss any abivalent feelings concerning a new baby. While this could be a detriment in another book, here it seems beautifully appropriate. The autobiographical main character, Tommy, wants a baby sister more than anything else, and the happy ending comes when he gets his wish and meets his little sister. This is a beautifully simple and charming story with lovely, gentle pictures. I know that this book helped us to announce our pregnancy to my son. Even though he has other books on this topic, 'The Baby Sister' is his favorite, with 'Julius, the Baby of the World' taking a close second.
