This is a delightful book telling in story form and pictures how a little girl of almost 5 years watched her baby brother grow and develop during the first year of his life. Such a book given or read and reread to a small child would do much to give him happiness and understanding in his relationship to a new baby. It meets a long felt need and may be recommended wholeheartedly. The excellent photographic illustrations are by Ralph W. Berry.
