How to be a Baby ... By Me, the Big Sister: 10/26/14
A picture book that my son and daughter both agree is funny is How To be A Baby . . . By Me, The Big Sister by Sally Lloyd-Jones. It's one of my daughter's finds at the library.
The Big Sister goes through all the ways her baby brother is different than she is. Each page has something that babies do that big kids have out grown or things that big kids can do that babies don't know how to do. Eventually as the brother grows, she warms to him and they are shown playing together.
For each of these "babies can / can't do this" topics my son and daughter had to debate the validity of the Big Sister's observations. When they weren't sure, they asked me to weigh in. It was fun to compare their experiences with the book's version.
