A soon-to-arrive new brother or sister promises fun and excitement, but can also be worrying for a child who fears being displaced. In Pumpkin Baby, a young girl with an active imagination tries to face her fears. Spurred on by trips with her mother to a family farm, she imagines a host of babies ? each with their own unique characteristics ? and wonders if she could, indeed, love such a sibling. Gently and lovingly told by best-selling author Jane Yolen, and illustrated with light, whimsical artwork by Susan Mitchell, Pumpkin Baby is both entertaining and inspiring for any family dealing with this situation.
