This book helps your older child adjust to his or her new role as big brother or big sister through extra love, guidance, and reassurance, as well as understanding about newborn differences. There is also a reference to when your older child was a baby, to help make the new baby experience familiar and personal. The story focuses on what will change and what will stay the same, and works to give your older child a sense of control where they can have it. Also, the concept of having two feelings in the midst of a transition is normalized for your child. Ultimately, your child is reassured that love expands as your family grows.
