Lucy Cousins’s sweet story of a new sibling is back in a larger paperback format perfect for lap sharing.
Za-Za’s mom just had a new baby! He's very small, very loud, and very demanding. Mom and Dad are too busy with the baby to play, but Mom has an idea. "Why don't you hug the baby?" It's hard not being the center of attention all the time, but being an older sibling can be fun, as little Za-Za finds out in this reassuring book from the creator of Maisy.

Lucy Cousins is the creator of the beloved Maisy series. She is also the author-illustrator of the widely acclaimed Yummy: Eight Favorite Fairy Tales, a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children’s Book, as well as I’m the Best and Hooray for Fish! Lucy Cousins lives in Hampshire, England.From Publishers Weekly:
Cousins's (Maisy Goes to School) childlike gouache figures and hand-lettered text set against bold fields of color give this oversized book a decidedly cheerful look. Za-Za, a young zebra, candidly narrates the story: "My mom is going to have a baby. She has a big fat tummy. There's not much room for a hug." A familiar scenario unfolds after Mom brings the newborn home from the hospital. Visitors arrive to coo at the baby, and Mom and Dad shower the interloper with attention, too. When Za-Za demands a hug "now!" Mom responds: "Why don't you hug the baby?" So the older sibling does just that-and, after spending some time playing with the little one, concludes, "He was nice. It was fun." Finally, Mom puts the baby to sleep, and Za-Za gets a hug and a story. If not the most clever or insightful book available on this well-worn subject, Cousins's simple story delivers a useful message to preschoolers in Za-Za's situation. Ages 2-up.
