Sitting on his mother's lap, a young Eskimo boy cheerfully gathers his belongings until he, some toys, his puppy, and a blanket are all crowded together in the rocking chair.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). I love Nicholas Sparks' books - enough to read them more than once. I read this gem when it first came out a few years back and enjoyed it just as much this time around.

This is a fantastic book, and I'm so thrilled with our purchase. While hunting for a "new sibling" book, the last thing I wanted was a book that outwardly instilled any fear--e.g., "the new baby's gonna take all your toys." Frankly, I also didn't want a book that had any sort of direct message, such as "you're going to feel jealous sometimes." I felt it was important to take a subtler approach, on the theory that I'd trust my child to read between the lines.

Well, this book is exactly what I was looking for. It's an absolute gem. It goes through a scene where a young boy wants to sit on his mother's lap, but keeps finding toys, loveys, blankets, etc. to bring onto his mother's lap with him (so, mother's lap slowly becomes more and more overloaded). The final scene shows a baby sibling wanting to join on the lap as well. The older boy doesn't think the baby will fit, but the mother assures him that there is always room on her lap. And, in the end, everyone (the two kids) and everything (the various toys, etc.) are able to fit.

Most importantly, my child LOVES it so much, and it's the only book about which my child has said "I really love this book." I have bought many other books on this subject, both for myself and for friends, but I've now found the ONLY book on this subject that I will buy in the future to gift to others.

Highly, highly recommended book.
I bought this book as a gift for a 2.5 year-old child who has two mommies and was expecting a little sister. I was having trouble finding a "big brother" book that did not include a daddy character, but this book worked perfectly. (It doesn't actually depict a two-mommy household -- the father just isn't depicted in the pictures or text.) I checked out the book when it arrived, and it seemed like a sweet story. According to the child's mother, he loved the book and asked for it to be read again and again. I think this book would be a great purchase for anyone, but it also works for children of mom(s)-only families (same-sex parents, single mom).
I purchased a few books to help my two year old transition to her impending big sister role, and she really enjoys this book. It's not so much about becoming a big sister or big brother, but a reminder that even though there is a new baby in the house, there is always time and space for the older child. The story is short but very sweet, and made me tear up the first few times reading it to my daughter.
A cousin sent this (boardbook form) to us for our 1-yr boy, and he loves it! The story reads quickly and simply, and the illustrations are just beautiful. I've always rocked my son to sleep (despite what modern books say to do) as it's our bonding time. The tenderness of the story is timeless. I hadn't thought of this book as preparing for a younger sibilng (as other reviews stated), but rather a statement about a mother's neverending love. To add to its charm (for me), our boardbook has a corner chewed off, as it was owned by my cousin's kids, who also loved the story. I'm buying a bunch of these for shower/baby gifts, it's such a lovely story.
We bought a couple different books to get our 2 year old son ready for his baby sister. This one is magnificent at reassuring him that there is always room on mommy's/daddy's lap and nothing will ever change that. My son loves the book and wants to read it every night before bed either before or after reading "you're getting a baby sister".
The message is sweet - that mother always has room on her lap for all her babies. I like having it in addition to the other new brother books we got, because those touch on additional things/situations. My 2 year old boy does ask for the "mother" book - and really enjoys it. We also think that the other big brother books we have have helped the transition too, because those show other situations. This one though is more subtle and just a sweet story that your child can enjoy past the new brother/sister stage. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I love this Eskimo story....but the original illustrations were exquisite and made the story. Unfortunately, I could not obtain an original copy that was affordable as a gift.
My younger son's favorite book when he was a toddler! I had actually purchased it to read to his older brother when I got pregnant the second time. I would use replace the characters' names with theirs when I read it, and my youngest would get excited when "he" was about to make his appearance. Both of them would race to my lap at the right moment in the story. ^.^

My sons are now tweens, but this book is a memento, it will always stay in our home.
