Simon likes to build things with his blocks. He has built a tall rocket, a very, very tall rocket, which then explodes. Ka-boom! Mommy tells Simon he has to play quietly. There is a new baby, a tiny new baby, in the house. Simon is not very happy about this new baby. He wishes the stupid baby would go back to where it came from. Simon worries about how long the stupid baby has been there and wonders if it will ever go away. It cries and takes up Simon’s parents’ time. He asks when the stupid baby will go back to the hospital, but his parents say he is Simon’s new baby brother and he’s there to stay. What is Simon to do?
Stephanie Blake has written a perfectly charming book about how an older sibling often feels about the new interloper who has come to disrupt his or her perfect life. The text has a lot of humor and a lot of heart. The cute, cartoony illustrations add to the sense of fun. Little ones will get the message and will fall in love with this sweet book. Don’t miss it.
