PreS--Using a question-and-answer dialogue, this book explores a toddler's feelings about the baby growing inside her mom. As the months pass, the girl repeats her question, "How big is the baby?" and each time, her mother finds something in the child's world to make the answer concrete. The baby's as big as a dot (from a pillow), as big as a tadpole (from the fish bowl), as big as an elephant (like her purple toy). In response, the youngster greets her invisible sibling with invitations: "Hi there, Dot! Want to hear a story?" or "Good day to you, Ellie! Want to play heffalumps?" Finally, when the infant is born, the girl visits the hospital to see the real thing and says, "Hello tiny brother. Welcome to my world." This story is an effective way for parents and youngsters to share their emotions while waiting for a new addition to the family. The bright, childlike watercolor illustrations portray a lively girl with dark corkscrew curls, button eyes, and a bright smile. The pages are bordered by the different items mentioned in the text. Unlike books that treat more complex issues of jealousy and sharing parental affection, this one does not venture beyond a child's basic curiosity about who's coming. A reassuring and simple story for family sharing.--Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
