This book is about a Mom getting pregnant. What happens in the beginning is about the whole family, especially Tommy wanting a baby sister. Then, Mom left to go to have her baby. Then Mom brought the baby home from the hospital.

I think this book was fun to read. I like the part when they painted the crib because they painted it all different colors, which was a great idea. The story made me feel happy because Tommy got a baby sister, which is what he wanted. The illustrations were good, they used soft colors, which matched the story.

I would recommend this book to kids that are going to have a baby brother or sister. It will cheer them up.
