In Minnie and Her Baby Brother by Melanie Walsh, a three-year-old compares herself with the new baby in the family. Lift-the-flaps illustrate their differences (""I sleep in a new big-girl bed. My baby brother sleeps in my old crib"") as well as the bonds they share (""He loves when I read to him-if he's awake""). The illustrations of the round-headed children and their surroundings exude a soothing sense of simplicity.
