This wonderfully original book is a 'how-to' manual for a baby written by his much wiser older sister. Perfect for young children about to become a brother or sister for the first time! When you're a baby you can't read books, wear real clothes, be a princess or a mermaid or a fairy - or do anything fun at all! Luckily your big sister - who knows how to do everything - has written this book so that you can learn as much as she has and be as good at everything as she is. Almost. This is a fun-filled manual, complete with tips and lists, for teaching a baby everything they need to know, illustrated with great exuberance and charm by Sue Heap. Also publishing this month is the hilarious sequel "How to Get Married". "How To Be A Baby" is a 2007 "New York Times" Notable Book and winner of the NAPPA Gold Award (National Parenting Publications Awards).
