I wasn't as thrilled with this book as I thought that I would be and to me, it was somewhat of a let-down. The ideal of the story was great. Teaching kids that being a big brother or sister is a good thing, however, the ending of this was not hitting it home for me. A little girl in it, states that she would love to be a big sister and at the end, her mom comes home with a brand new baby. The little girl acts surprised. To me, it's just not that realistic. However, for the importance of the story, I am giving this the rating of 3 stars.
