Hello in There! A Big Sister’s Book of Waiting

Jo Witek, illus. by Christine Roussey. Abrams Appleseed, $16.95 (28p) ISBN 978-1-4197-0371-3
In a helpful counterpoint to the many stories about sibling displacement, Witek and Roussey introduce a girl who’s thrilled about her soon-to-be-sibling. “You’re in there and I’m out here.... I’m waiting for you!” says the girl, her eyes darting coyly toward her mother’s curving belly, barely visible on the facing page. While the girl wonders about the unborn babe and anticipates spending time together, readers can lift increasingly large flaps on Mom’s growing belly, watching the development of the contented baby inside. Roussey’s whimsical, scraggly illustrations are perfectly suited to the girl’s excitement as the big day approaches. Ages 2–4. (May)
