“Why is Sadie crying?” Cameron asks, and asks, and asks. While Cameron loves his new baby sister, he does not love her crying. Mom and Dad can quiet Sadie by changing her diaper, feeding her, and singing lullabies, but when all else fails, Cameron takes over. A Good Big Brother can rub tummies and kiss toes to turn a whimper into a smile!

With humor and warmth, New York Times bestselling illustrators Lou Fancher and Steve Johnson delightfully illustrate this fresh, positive, and true-to-life spin on getting a new sibling.
