My 4 yr old is obsessed with babies & loves reading. But I'm really getting tired of reading books about the new baby sister/brother. We do not plan to have more children & now she's praying to God to send her a sibling.

We have Baby Brains Superstar by Simon James (which I see is a series.... ) on loan from the library. It's incredibly refreshing. So, please, please, please send me your book recommendations!

George Speaks by Dick King Smith (author of Babe) is hilarious.

Twinnies by Eve Bunting

And there was a great book about a rascally baby but I'm blanking on the title and author. I think it was published by Schwarz and Wade.
