Older sister talks about the baby in her family. After describing the diversity of various baby characteristics, she comes back to her own sibling. The reader realises that all babies are different but nevertheless all special. The book is very inclusive, gathering in families and parents of all kinds. Warm and homely illustrations, with soft colours and sketchy outlines suggest vitality, movement and loving inclusion. This sensitive family book is about tolerance as much as the binding strength of family love.
