This book is great for any kid, but a must read if you are having a second baby (or a first human baby with a furry baby in the house). A relatable story with adorable illustrations.

Rudy the dog is an irresistibly charming narrator, and his loving family sets a great (yet subtle!) example for how to make older siblings (human or pet alike!) come around to a new family member. Beautiful and bright illustrations made me squee!
