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.

Good book for parents who have a child who maybe experiencing some mixed feelings about having a baby brother or sister. A sibling shows her soon to be brother or sister what her world will be like once born. So cute and love the illustrations.

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

Really didn't like this one. I only really gave it a two star rating because I did love the illustrations. On page three the oldest daughter says "I almost want to eat them, but that would be silly !" This was referring to her feet smelling so sweet. Ummmmm yeah. That's a no go for me. I get it as an adult, the saying of "I just want to eat you up". But when I read this line out loud to my five year old he laughed and said ewww.

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

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.

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