Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

This is a sweet rhyming board book that is narrated through the eyes of an older sibling when a brand new baby comes to reside permanently in the family. 

I love the diverse characters of the multicultural families showcased and the fact that babies are cared for and treasured the same all around the world.  They are precious gifts that every member of the family get to embrace.  

The book celebrates different ways that an older sibling can interact and bond with the newest member of the family.  The colourful illustrations greatly enrich the positive inspiring message of the book... having a younger one join the family is a wonderful addition not only to the family but to life. I highly recommend this book.
