A special day, indeed
It's One Special Book!
"Ok, I've seen her, you can take her back!" Granted, I was two when I said that and didn't realize that #1, that little baby would grow up to be one of my very best friends in the whole world and #2, being a big sibling didn't take away everything else I already was. But even as young as I was, I might have gotten a jump on both of these important ideas with the beautiful new book, One Special Day. Spencer is a 'big' kid: strong, fast, loud, funny and imaginative. But one day, one special day, Spencer discovers he can be all these things and even more. With dynamic illustrations and a format that invites your 'big' toddler or preschooler to help tell the story, One Special Day is a wonderful way to approach the arrival of a new sibling.
And if your 'big' kid is feeling left out after baby arrives, share the rollicking read aloud, Brand-New Baby Blues by Kathi Appelt and watch those grumpy faces turn to giggles.
