A little girl explains some do's and don'ts for those who have a new baby brother or sister. Don't give the baby to a kangaroo or swap him for the school guinea pig. Where the don'ts are funny and silly, the do's are kind and loving. Holly Sterling's illustrations provide a warm, humorous and friendly accompaniment to the text. The mixed race family depicted deliberately leaves the gender of the baby unclear so that the reader may substitute the 'he' used in the text for 'she'.
