In this story, a new brother decides, "after weeks and weeks, and months and months, and more than half a year," that it's time for that no-good baby to go. His mom helps him pack up the baby's stuff and gets ready to send her off—for one whole day at Grandma's house. Then, Mom and son have a whole day of "just us." This story is a lighthearted acknowledgement that our older children need time and attention more than ever after a new sibling comes along.

Reviewed by KAY MARNER, a mother by birth and adoption. She works for the public library in Ames, Iowa.
