Summaries and Reviews
When her mother tells her about the soon-to-be new baby, Sophie says that she$d rather have a pet that does interesting and fun things, but upon the newborn's arrival, Sophie begins to see that babies are quite amusing too. description: Product Description: Sophie accepts that her mommy is going to have a baby . . . sort of. But she wishes it could be the kind of baby she wants. After all, a regular old human baby can't play like a puppy, make funny noises like a monkey, or blow bubbles like a fish. Or can it? Sophie's in for the best kind of surprise!

The feelings of a young child are beautifully captured in this insightful and funny portrait of one of childhood's most momentous experiences.
