What Can Our New Baby Do?
Joan Holub. Little Simon, $7.99 (22pp) ISBN 978-0-689-85061-5
Joan Holub uses humor to answer the question, What Can Our New Baby Do?, which places a pie-faced newborn in wacky situations, and uses a flap to return the baby and its older brother to reality. ""What will our new baby eat? Polar bears? Hopping fleas? Violins?"" A lift of the flap depicts the real menu: ""Mushy peas."" Holub's jokey humor and zany cartoons may well keep new siblings in stitches while making them feel more comfortable with the prospect of their new family member.
