A Baby for Grace is a short illustrated story about a young girl being introduced to her first younger sibling. The story begins with Grace not knowing where her mother is, and finding out that she is in hospital with the baby. The following pages describe Grace's experiences in the run up to the baby coming home, including; watching her father speak to lots of people on the telephone, her Grandparents coming over to tidy up the house, and observing the decorator finishing up the baby's bedroom. ...more

This is a wonderful story! The way Grace responds is so realistic. The pictures are great - in the cover illustration, the artist captures Grace's pride, nervousness, and anxiety to please while holding her little sister.

A delightful book which shows how young children find it hard to find their place and explain their feelings when a new sibling arrives.
Lovely words and illustrations - the words are just as a young child would say / think.
