"THE NEW BABY"
The New Baby by Cyndy Szekeres Tiny Paw Library
Tiny Mouse has to adjust to the change of a baby mouse in the house. His new bed is between his big brother and big sister while the new baby has the bed by Mommy and Daddy. Everyone is busy helping and loving on the new baby that he feels uncared for. He is lovingly shown that he can do things by himeself. "He doesn't need a tiny hug anymore. He needs a big hug! Because now Tiny is a big brother!" Then the story goes on to show how big brother Tiny Mouse can help. I love the second to last page "But he still fits just right in Mother's lap."
Such a sweet story. Cute illustrations.
