"Congratulations You've been born. Now what? "

New babies have a lot to learn; lucky for them, the older sibling in "Dogs Don't Eat Jam and Other Things Big Kids Know" is here to tell them everything they have to remember . . . and look forward to.

Whether it's advice on turning regular people into parents, learning how to go -- and stop -- or figuring out the most important words (Mama Dada Up ), "Dogs Don't Eat Jam" is filled with useful tips and lessons from an experienced older sibling that will help newborns navigate the uncertainties of their new world.

Following on the heels of the much-praised "A Flock of Shoes," Sarah Tsiang and Qin Leng team up for a second time in this playful new picture book. It's the ultimate guide for newborns from an older, wiser sibling.
