This picture book is full of sweet sentiment and darling illustrations. It isn't a story so much as a promise of things to come between sisters. The excitement of having a new baby in the house is a big deal to older siblings, and this shines through.

As a read-aloud book, however, it is difficult to get into a decent rhythm. The prose is laid out to look as though it is rhythmic, so, while reading to my own daughter, I kept feeling off kilter. This may seem like a nitpicky thing to say, but try

I love being a big sister too! This book reminded me a lot of my relationship with my little sister and the things we used to do together. Some children get nervous when they are going to have a new brother or sister, but this book describes all the fun things you can do when you have a brother or sister to play with.

More credit should be given to the illustrator who drew delightful pictures to accompany this book. I really think that Welcome to Your World, Baby would not have gained notoriety if it was not written by Brooke Shields.

This was over the top girlie. Everything was pink and tea parties and tiaras and dolls... It made me a little nauseous.

Sweet, and well illustrated: my child loved it. I say it beats the heck out of Billy Joel's similar book.
