What's Not Yet, Rose About

Publisher Summary

As Rose anxiously awaits the birth of her family’s new baby, she isn’t sure what to expect about her new role as big sister. She isn’t sure whether she wants a baby brother or a baby sister. Actually, she isn’t sure she wants a new baby at all! But when the new baby arrives, suddenly everything seems just right.

Susanna Leonard Hill’s text perfectly captures the excitement and apprehension of children anticipating the arrival of a new baby, and Nicole Rutten’s sweet hamster characters make this an ideal story for siblings-to-be.
