An all-knowing big sister offers her baby sibling this hilarious guide on to how to behave, from keeping a special plug in his mouth to stop a scream from coming out to learning that one day he'll be taller and smarter than he is now. Full color.
The “New York Times” praised this best-selling picture book as “adorable, original, well-illustrated and fabulous.” In this first book in the How-To Series (which includes “How To Get Married” and “How to Get a Job”), the know-it-all big sister narrator tells it like it is: When you're a baby you don't read books. You eat them. You don't know how old you are, or even if you're a boy or a girl. And you have to keep a special plug in your mouth to stop your scream from coming out. But one day, you won't be little anymore, and then you'll be taller and smarter, and actually quite clever. Like the narrator. And you'll be able to share memories of what it was like when you were little with your incredible Big Sister.
