A great book to read especially to big brothers and sisters. We learn all the important things that a little 6 year old thinks are necessary for their little sib to learn.
I love this team of writer and illustrator.... They also did Flock of Shoes together and The Stone Hatchlings

Here in this cheerful picture book, an older sister explains to her new baby brother that he has a lot to learn. She covers things like the potty, learning to walk, and that things fall down (a lot).

Here's another good children's book by Sarah Tsiang, I loved her book called A Flock of Shoes. This new book is a delightful book to read to children about a new baby that has arrived in the family and the older sister explains to her new baby brother about different things the baby will have to learn about from her the older sister.

A sweet, funny, charming book about a little girl who's teaching her baby brother what he needs to know in order to one day be big like her. The illustrations by Qin Leng are especially adorable.

Though many people suggested that she work in a bookmobile, it just didn’t thrill her the way an 18-wheeler could. Eventually, she gave up that dream and decided to be the prime minister of Canada. Somehow, this led her to writing picture books and poetry.
