Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?

by Barney Saltzberg

Candlewick Press 2009

Ages: 3 to 5

Topic: Great Read Alouds: Stories You Won't Want to Miss

Cornelius P. Mud is introduced to his new baby brother who can't do anything that Cornelius likes. The book touches on sibling rivalry at the arrival of a new baby: "I wish we could send him back." It has a lovely ending, though. Especially good for the new arrival of a baby brother.
