Description

Lucy Cousins’s sweet story of a new sibling is back in a larger paperback format perfect for lap sharing. We have a number of new baby books for our 19-month-old, who will become a big brother any day now.

Lucy Cousins’s sweet story of a new sibling is back in a larger paperback format perfect for lap sharing. Za-Za’s mom just had a new baby! He's very small. The other books that are simple enough for him don't make it terribly clear what's going to happen as we transition from pregnancy to newborn. This book has helped him to understand that the baby is going to come out of Mommy's tummy and come to our house. We talk about how Za-Za is sad when everyone wants to play with the baby, but then how happy she is when she plays with the baby, too.

This book is a must-have for the family having a second or third child. The text is perfect and the illustrations terrific

"This book is a must-have for the family having a second or third child. The text is perfect and the illustrations terrific." - USA TODAYFirst Za-Za’s mom has a big fat tummy. Then Za-Za’s mom has a baby, and Za-Za’s parents are too busy to pay any attention to her. So she plays by herself, and she plays with the baby, and finally, when it’s time for the baby to go to sleep, Mom and Dad give her just what she needs: a big hug! With her trademark childlike sensibility and bold, bright art, Maisy creator Lucy Cousins reassures young children that while life may change when a new baby arrives, Mom and Dad’s love stays the same.

My 2 year old loved this book. It's a great book for young first time older siblings.

I'm not sure what reviewers who feel the parents are rejecting Za-Za in this book are reading. The message that I read is that a new baby will mean more patience from a big sibling, BUT it also means someone new to play with and to love. Za-Za's mother does NOT tell her there isn't time for a hug - she suggests that Za-Za hug the baby instead, which leads to Za-Za making a connection and discovering that it's fun to have a sibling. Yes, the book shows Za-Za playing by herself while relatives coo over the new baby. Yes, her parents tell her she has to wait for them to read her a book while they change diapers and wash dishes... but these are the realities of having a new baby in the house.

We have a number of new baby books for our 19-month-old, who will become a big brother any day now. The other books that are simple enough for him don't make it terribly clear what's going to happen as we transition from pregnancy to newborn. This book has helped him to understand that the baby is going to come out of Mommy's tummy and come to our house. We talk about how Za-Za is sad when everyone wants to play with the baby, but then how happy she is when she plays with the baby, too. I find this book much less negative than the ones written for preschoolers that chronicle every injustice and annoyance a new baby brings. Za-Za's Baby Brother is much more general, allowing you to talk about how your big kid might feel, and what he or she might do to feel happy, when the baby arrives. He also really likes the colorful illustrations! We've found the art in the majority of these new baby books to be pretty blah.

I am only writing a review because I was surprised by the negative reviews for a book that my children love. I did not buy this book to prepare for a new sibling -- I bought it because we like the brightly illustrated books of Lucy Cousins. Maybe if we had bought it to prepare for a new sibling I would have different feelings. However, I have to say that my daughter, age 2, pulls this book out and brings it to me to read all the time, and my son, age 4, will still come running to listen to it when he hears us reading it, even though he has heard it hundreds of times since he was a baby. It's a fun book (especially if you narrate it with a silly voice for Za-Za and include crying baby sound effects). As for the new sibling issue, a newborn baby does get a lot of attention, and the older sibling probably will have a big adjustement, just like Za-Za. Maybe some reviewers think it's negative because the story is told from Za-Za's perspective and she is feeling the loss of some of her parent's attention. But you know what -- that is what really happens in real life! Children do have to learn to share some of the attention that has previously been only on them, and Za-Za learns this and also learns to appreciate her baby brother. Is that so bad? The negative reviews haven't changed my opinion, and they sure won't change my children's. At least check it out from the library before you dismiss this book entirely.

This book is by Lucy Cousins, who, if you did not know, is the creator of the ever-popular Maisy.
I'm not sure what Ms. Cousins was going for here. The reality is, the book probably provides a realistic portrayal of how an older child can find their wants set aside because there is a new born in the house. Ms. Cousins resolution appears to be to have the older child realize that they can help with, and play with, their new sibling just like the adults do.
But, while realistic, I'm not so sure it's a good message for young children. My oldest daughter does not particularly like this book. I'm not sure if it's because it sends a message that she should subsume who own ego, wants, and needs to those of her younger sister or if she just doesn't find it interesting. Of course, four year olds don't necessarily feel a need to provide commentary on why or shy not they don't want a book.
The book is also troubling in that the parents seem so oblivious to Za-Za's needs. Not a good message to be sending to older siblings.
As with all her books, Ms. Cousins's art is simple, but colorful and effective. I just believe a better message would be sent had she shown some signs throughout the book that the parents were not so oblivious to Za-Za.

This book was given to my 22 month old daughter as a gift when her baby brother was born. It is now 9 months later, the binding is bent and we will probably have to buy a new copy soon because she reads this book EVERY day. This is the story she wants for bed every night. She knows it word for word and "reads" it to her baby brother and to mommy and daddy. I think there are two great lessons in this book: 1. that babies take alot of work and Zaza needs to be patient, and 2. Mom and dad, don't forget about Zaza now that there is a new baby. Zaza needs attention too. Taken into perspective, this is a book designed for a preschooler on a preschoolers comprehension level, not for an adult to analyze. If we take the time to analyze everything, then Little Miss Muffet is teaching our kids to be afraid of spiders, Hansel and Gretel are teaching them to break into strangers houses and worst of all, Snow White is teaching our children that step mothers are evil witches and to be very, very afraid to eat apples.
As always with Lucy Cousins, the illustrations are adorable. As much as we'd like it not to be so, when a new baby enters the house, it DOES get most of the attention. This book addresses that issue, but also gently points out that the older sibling can share time with the baby -- "helping" with its care, and playing with it. And it promises that when the baby does finally go to sleep, mommy or daddy will have one-on-one time with that older sibling. We love this book (we have it in Norwegian!). And even though our new "baby brother" is now heading toward two years old, big sister still loves this book. Note to adoptive parents: as you can probably tell from the cover illustration, this book depicts a very pregnant mommy zebra that goes to the hospital to have the baby, so this one isn't for you; I would recommend intead "I'm a Big Sister" or "I'm a Big Brother" by Joanna Cole.
