Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. Kristen's baby brother is born at a zoo instead of a hospital. Her overwrought parents repeatedly bring home the wrong infant?first an alligator, then a seal, then a monkey. Finally, brave Kristen takes off on her bike and locates the misplaced "people baby." Thanks to the brave, smart big sister, the babies get sorted out, "And everything was okay...until Kristen's mother had twins." Storytime audiences will cackle as Kristen examines each baby, pointing out the animal parts (claws, flippers, tails, etc.) that convince her none of these creatures is her new brother. The silliness escalates in the ebullient watercolor illustrations. Kristen's mother tosses hair curlers out the car window on the first trip to the zoo, leaving her hair to twist wildly for the rest of the story. The animal youngsters have a grand time visiting the humans' house. The seal balances shampoo on its nose while it plays in the bathtub; the monkey swings from the chandelier. Refreshingly different from most "new baby" stories.?Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA

About the Author

ROBERT MUNSCH likes to use kids he meets on his storytelling adventures across Canada and the U.S. in his books. Ribbon Rescue was inspired by Jillian, a Mohawk girl from the Kahnawake reserve outside of Montreal, who went to hear a storytelling wearing a traditional ribbon dress. We Share Everything! is about Amanda and Jeremiah, whom he met in Pontiac, Michigan.

Robert and his wife live in Guelph with their three children - each of whom has appeared in various Munsch stories - and their dog, Cinder. Bob spends most of his time writing, and likes to devote his spare time to making school visits and telling stories. His books for Scholastic include Alligator Baby, Andrew's Loose Tooth, Get Out of Bed!, Ribbon Rescue, Mmm, Cookies!, Makeup Mess, Up, Up, Down, Aaron's Hair and Playhouse.

My toddler picked this book out on her own one day at the local library and fell in love with it. She wanted to read it so often that I ended up buying it. Highly recommend this book to everyone, especially if your a Munsch fan!

This is my fifth year with the elementary school, yet it is my first year in the library. The first book that I read to the children was 'Aligator Baby'. I believe what the children love the most about this book is that there is never a dull moment! All the children participate in what is going to happen next, and they enjoy finishing the sentences. This tells me that the children are focused, and they want me to read it over and over! It is fun to act out the parts as I read to the classes. (1st grade to 3rd grade.) I really do need more books like this one for the chidren. One of the specials that I have with the children is that each child can share a "favorite page" from a book they borrowed. The students always have something good to say about 'Aligatory Baby'. Thanks

We just got this book for our almost three year old who is going to be a big sister in a few weeks. She is so excited about the new baby now. I love that this book makes the kid the hero! Also, the illustrations are wonderful! Very funny and lots of detail, if you look closely you'll see delightful little extras in the illustration. I now plan to buy many more Munsch books, this one is great!

I found this book while taking a Children's Literature class. It is a funny tale of a five year old that knows more than her parents about what her new baby sibling should look like. It has great repeating lines that get children involved in the story. I highly recommend this book. It is entertaining for both children and adults.

Format: Paperback
This is one of our favourite books. A humorous look at a new addition to the family. This was the perfect story for our two children when #3 child arrived, the humour takes away some of the stress and expectation for young children when a new baby is joining the family. Also a great gift.

I had this sent to my 2 year old granddaughter. She is expecting a baby brother in 4 months and just loves this story. Her mom has to read her the story every night and my granddaughter has favorite lines from ALLIGATOR BABY that she yells out!
