Ruby’s Baby Brother.
by Kathryn White
A little girl’s imagination takes flight to help her process all the scary things about a new brother being brought home for the first time. She gathers her resources together to prepare for his arrival: a magic wand for safety, a space rocket to send him far away.
Suddenly, the unexpected happens, she falls in love with his soft tiny hands.
Imagination changes purpose. Now it brings play and protection into both their lives.
What a fun book this is. The imagination can soar with adorably warm and funny illustrations that Miriam Latimer creates with every turn of the page.
A big added bonus for breastfeeding advocates is a picture of mom nursing her little boy. This image is hard to find in children books.
I love that the publisher of this book, Barefoot Books, started as a home business back in the early nineties. They have an ambassador program where parents can have their own independent business selling books. Check them out here.
