Jack Kirby and the X-man
A wordless picture book that tries to portray the impact a new baby will have on the first child.

There are scenes where the new baby is obviously dominating, with everyone giving presents and cooing. But there are also scenes where mum and dad get to spend some alone time reading to the older brother.

Also begins to introduce ideas like breastfeeding and baby-wearing which might concern the older brother.

A useful tool in the arsenal of those with "number 2" on the way.

I love this book. I would give it more stars if I could. It's a wordless picture book showing some activities a toddler/preschooler older sibling might experience after the birth of a new baby. This is my third time reading it to my youngest before a baby comes and they have all loved it and I refer back to it when the baby is here. ("Remember in the baby book how the mama had to sit down and nurse the baby? That's what Mama is doing now. Do you want to show her a toy like the big brother did in ...more

This was one of my favorite books to "read" to Isaac when I was pregnant with Elise (and I never paid attention to the author at the time - so when I found it at the library today I had to jot it down and add it on goodreads). It was one of the few books that I found really helpful to prepare him to be a big brother. There just aren't very many books about a "new baby" written for young toddlers (Isaac was 18 months when Elise was born) - so this picture board book (no words) was perfect for him ...more

i like the pictures in this and its fellow series members, but i don't like that there were no words because i was forced to make up the story each time i read it and in my current state of fatigue and non-imagination-ness, i would rather not. i think elisa is just getting to the point where she will "read" a story to herself or her babies or anna so it might be more fun if she was making it up instead of me.

This seems to be a decent book to alert our son to the impending arrival of his baby brother. In particular, he is drawn to the notion of "presents", but it's a good way to talk through what's coming up, especially for parents of a boy who are expecting another.

Recommends it for: expectant parents with a child/ren
The best thing about this book is that there are no words - so every time you sit down to read this, you & your child can talk about different things. The older sibling, the new baby, helping mommy & daddy, and so on...

A beautiful little wordless book. Tender. The baby nurses a lot, so this is good pick for the family with a nursing mom.
