What happens when a little girl notices that certain things about her mommy are changing? What does she think about the growing tummy and new afternoon naps? When I Got A Sister is a first-person story, told in rhyme, of a young girl welcoming a sibling and all the joys and learning that come along with the new addition. The book follows her as she tries to put together what’s happening in her family, and what life will be like with a new baby at home.
Author Samantha Kennedy was inspired to write this story when she was pregnant with her second daughter as a way to capture the wonder and, finally, the joy her first daughter felt at the idea of welcoming a new sibling.
The watercolor illustrations of artist Niki Keys lead the reader into the fanciful, inquisitive world of the narrator and through a range of emotions that settle on love for her new baby sister.
This book is perfect for pre-k to 3rd grade readers and is a great way to ease a child into the joys of Mom’s pregnancy and what it means to be an older sibling, When I Got a Sister is a must-read for soon-to-be older siblings.
