"...a blend of genuinely useful tips and good humor, in a sympathetic but matter-of-fact approach..." 



"Softly colored, jaunty cartoon drawings with dialogue bubbles match the cheery tone of the text. A baby with older siblings as enlightened as Anna and Oliver is one lucky baby." 



"Lighthearted and funny, this is an ideal book to share with soon-to-be big brothers and sisters." 

–School Library Journal 


"In keeping with the book's humor and general good cheer, Leng's spirited watercolors bring both the chaos and the charm of babies to vibrant life... Expect older kids to go gaga over this informative little guide."
