by Pleasant T. Rowland
Since toddlers often greet the arrival of a sibling with the warmth of a Doberman, this hands-on primer aims to make the older tyke feel less threatened and shows how to care for the newborn.
The toddler can pull a tab and see Baby’s feet kick in a bath or help dress the baby by opening or closing the cardboard diaper and undershirt. (The book comes in two editions, one featuring a white baby, the other a black infant.) Your 2-year-old may try to rip the tabs out or tear the blanket on one page, but better that than laying hands on a new brother or sister. (Pleasant Company, $19.95; 800-845-0005)
