Tenemos un bebe / We Have a Baby
Cathryn Falwell, Clairion Books, 2008
Oh lovely book! In Spanish and in English, illustrated with gorgeous paintings, a small Latino child tells the story of the new baby in their home. He and his parents have a baby to watch, to touch, to take care of, to feed, to wash, to dress, to carry. The last pages show with tenderness of this change, and say "...a baby to love, and a baby to love us" - every household with a second (or third, or?) baby should have this book.
