My daughter has slept with this Carter's Snuggle Buddy non-stop for the past 14 months, it has been washed dozens of times and has seen plenty of stains and spills. Every time it comes out of the wash it bounces back for more action. Quick delivery too!

For Big Brother: Big brother is so big he doesn't even fit on the cover of the book. All readers see are his untied sneakers, his baggy red socks, and his bandaged legs stretching up off the page. He is so big that he can do just about anything: play wonderful music (he beats a drum and blows a whistle), engage in important work (he's wearing a toy construction hat and tools), and train for the circus (he balances a large ball on his feet). But this boy is not so busy that he can't find time for his younger sibling. They play together and he even endures being splattered with food and listening to ear-offending "singing." This ode to the wonders of a boy whose simplest deeds take on heroic proportions in the eyes of a young sibling is related in brief, simple sentences and illustrated with close-up, full-color photographs, framed in white and placed opposite huge type surrounded by white space on the left. When big brother is standing, he is viewed from the perspective of someone very low to the ground looking up. It is only in the last frame, where the child is mirrored in a toy, that readers learn the supposed "narrator" is a baby.

For Big Sister: Life with an older sibling is playfully celebrated in this book. From a baby's point of view, everything about an older sister seems larger than life-as the opening close-up shot of pink high-top sneakers indicates. Fisher's bright, artfully composed photographs offer a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the brief, simple text. This dynamic big sister "likes to pick out everyone's clothes" (including the pet guinea pig's) and gets "oodles" of calls (on her red plastic toy phone). She is fun to play with, but the narrator knows "I'm not supposed to bother her when she's working" (like when she's painting her toenails). The relationship is both loving ("My big sister kisses me") and realistic ("and sometimes she doesn't"). A visual treat that is perfect for sharing when the new baby comes.

These will make a fine read-aloud, but will probably appeal more to older siblings than to the lap set. Great for ages 3-8. Choose brother or sister from the drop down menu.
