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. A very relatable story, especially for young girls, the pictures also do a great job of keeping the reader engaged and seeing all the things little girls spend their time doing. A ...more
I love reading this book to both my daughters.

A little girl welcomes her new baby sister home from the hospital and takes joy in telling and showing her all the activities and experiences they will share.

Note: This book would work well for a child who is about to be a big sister. The illustrations include a lot of pink, which I am not found of, but many children love.
this is the only children's picture book written by a famous person that i've actually enjoyed. big sister welcomes her little sister and they have fun doing things that sisters do. the girls loved this book because it was like a snapshot of their lives, really.

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 is one of our family's all time favorites! I love the pictures and the two little girls. We read this book all the time, sometimes multiple times a day.
My girls and I love this book! Perfect for anyone with two little girls, as they will surely relate to this cute story of sisterly love!

This was over the top girlie. Everything was pink and tea parties and tiaras and dolls... It made me a little nauseous.
Simple yet cute story about a big sister's plans for her and her new little sister. Illustrations are adorable.
Sweet, and well illustrated: my child loved it. I say it beats the heck out of Billy Joel's similar book.
