Lilli-Pilli’s Sister

I was sent this by the publisher.


By: Anna Branford

Illustrated by: Linda Catchlove

Lilli-Pilli’s mother is going to have a baby. Lilli-Pilli is very excited about having a baby sister, she knows it is going to be a sister because she can feel it in her wings. Lilli-Pilli is helping her dad make the baby’s crib and he sends her out to collect some soft things to put in it, so it is comfortable for baby. As Lilli-Pilli speaks to others she begins to wonder if her wings are right because they seem so sure the baby will be a boy. Is Lilli-Pilli wrong to trust her wings?

This is a totally adorable book about getting a new baby in the family. It shows how a big sister (or brother) can help out even before a baby is born. The lovely thing here is the feeling of family and community, if you are looking for a picture book to help with the concept of a new sibling this is a great choice. The text is beautifully descriptive and the illustrations delightfully whimsical. A real delight to read and re-read. I am unashamedly a fan of Anna Branford’s work.

Highly recommended.

The Big Sister

By: Sally Rippin

Billie B Brown

This time the B stands for Baby. Billie is going to be a big sister and she is very excited. She has decided to give the new baby her favourite teddy bear Fred as she won’t need him any more because she will be a big sister. Then when the time comes for Billie’s mum to go to the hospital Billie comes to think that maybe there are times she still needs Fred.

A cute little story about all the nerves, excitement and changes that happen when a new baby is expected into a family. Billie as always is enthusiastic and fun and in the process she learns a little something. Billie B Brown books are a lot of fun and they let kids know it is okay not to always feel good and happy about different things.Billie is a great character and feels so real and identifiable to readers because she is allowed to experience, this is valuable for our children to read about.
