I have often suggested to parents looking for "new baby" books to think of their child's reaction to a new sibling as the equivalent of how THEY would feel if Dad brought home a new wife! Here Kornell attempts to use a bear as a sibling substitute and while it may tickle grownups, a bear is not really a substitute for a baby. Nor will it grow up quickly into the perfect playmate.

Above all, a lot of the "new baby" books are used by parents of 2 and 3 year olds who seldom relate what's going on in the story to what's going to happen at their house. Subbing a bear for a baby isn't going to help that any.
