Tom's new baby brother comes with a lot of surprises.

When Tom's mother brings home a new baby brother, things start changing for Tom. Not only is the baby in his crib, but Mom and Dad never have time to read to him, go to the park, or play games. Tom gets very angry at all these changes, but his parents help him to see how much Tom and the baby have in common.

For every child that has had a difficult time adjusting to a new baby, Marjorie Newman shows that a little bit of understanding can go a long way. Ken Wilson-Max's simple paintings illustrate the true excitement and sweetness of a new baby.
