Publisher Description

From the author and illustrator of the bestselling In My Heart!

This oversized interactive book is a heartfelt look at the wonder and excitement of waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting for a new sibling to arrive. The charming protagonist is so eager to step into her role as a big sister that she's starting early! She sticks close to her mama so she can sing songs to her sibling-to-be (loudly, of course) and explain all the great things waiting in the outside world (cupcakes! strawberries! swimming!). Quaint line drawings and lovely patterns lend a breezy, lighthearted atmosphere to the story, and a variety of playful flaps add gentle humor, showing the new baby blissfully tucked away in its mama's belly. A joyful and celebratory ode to the growing family for any sister- or brother-to-be.

The Growing Hearts series celebrates the milestones of a toddler's emotional development, from conquering fears and expressing feelings to welcoming a new sibling.

Praise for Hello in There! STARRED REVIEW "Roussey's whimsical, scraggly, illustrations are perfectly suited to the girl's excitement as the big day approaches."

  • Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Thick and sturdy pages and flaps are made to withstand many eager perusals as big sisters and brothers everywhere gear up for their own big days."

  • Kirkus Reviews

"This has charming possibilities for helping a youngster to envision (and get accustomed to) the impending sibling."

  • The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
