I’m A Big Sister by Joanna Cole and Rosalinda Knightly

Daughter’s age when read: 2.5 years old

We received this one as a gift when I was pregnant with our second child.  We were hoping it would help her get used to the idea of a new baby arriving.  It was a huge hit with her.  The first day we had to read it about 5 times in a row and then it became a part of her bedtime routine for probably a good month and then she still requested it sporadically for the next few months.  Our son is now 1 month old and our daughter still quotes lines from this book like “babies can’t eat ice cream or pizza”.  As for myself I thought the illustrations were wonderful and I really enjoyed the story line.  I think it’s a perfect book for those who want to prepare their daughter for a new baby.  There is also a counterpart for boys called I’m a Big Brother.
