This is one of my older son’s favorite books right now. When we went to read it the other day, he said “Oh, I love that one!” It is good book to share with children with new siblings in the house. Unfortunately, they can relate to parents being busy with the new little one. In this story, Ruby finds ways to stay amused while mom is busy with the baby. Eventually, she gets tired of waiting and starts dreaming up ways to make her little brother disappear. Either by selling him at a yard sale or hiding him in the cabbages at the grocery store, she is determined to find a new home for him. Eventually, mom has time to play with Ruby and her new brother. Then Ruby decides that he is not so bad to have around after all. The sweet illustrations make the story even more enjoyable.
