"From a chart on how a baby grows up in utero to the end of her first day home, this book covers the entire birthing process as described by an older brother. . . . The book objectively presents intimate images and experiences: the baby inside the womb (shown in mother’s tummy and in a full-page close-up), the mother nursing her, the boy and his dad carefully sponging around the umbilical cord scab. . . . When Eliza hits the scene the artwork really shines, as Rock-well captures both the skinny helplessness and surprising individuality of a newborn. Readers who have already welcomed a new baby into their home will enjoy remembering the events portrayed here while future siblings will gain insight into what’s in store for them."–School Library Journal, Starred

"In a refreshing departure from other books about siblings . . . the approach of this text is optimistic, reflected in Rockwell’s bright, cheerful illustrations. An upbeat, encouraging account."–Kirkus Reviews

"Rockwell integrates a factual approach and a down-home quality. . . . Emphasis and proportion accurately reflect a happy child’s point of view."–Publishers Weekly
