Reviews of ¡Mírame!/Look At Me! (Child's Play - Bilingual Titles)

“These four books in the New Baby series are just right for toddlers awaiting and adjusting to the birth of a new sibling. They cover pregnancy, welcoming the baby, and learning to play and live together. … The multiracial families are always smiling and gentle. Colorful artwork fills each page. The writing is clear, conversational, and full of common situations.”

“The child’s constant smiles, even when things get a little rough (‘Why is Baby crying? Can we make it stop?’), and the cozy family home are in keeping with the book’s positive focus.”

Anticipating an addition to the family is both exciting and daunting for young children so this sensitive story was most welcome. It is part of a series - Waiting for Baby, You and Me and Look at Me - and stimulated much discussion about the different emotions, both pleasing and anxious, associated with a new arrival. It encouraged a very quiet and shy pupil to contribute and share her family secret!

A toddler observes and asks questions about the new baby in this story, part of a series designed to help new siblings adjust. “Why does the baby always have milk?” the toddler wonders as her mother breastfeeds. The child’s constant smiles, even when things get a little rough (“Why is Baby crying? Can we make it stop?”), and the cozy family home are in keeping with the book’s positive focus. Also available: Waiting for Baby , You and Me , and Look at Me! Up to age 3.
