Bobo and the New Baby by Rebecca Minhsuan Huang-OPTIONAL

Huang, Rebecca Minhsuan Bobo and the New Baby. PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, 2018.  $16.99. 

Bobo is a very happy and content pet.  He likes his life.  He likes to snooze and to chase but what he loves most of all are Mr. and Mrs. Lee.  They love Bobo too.  They take him everywhere and do everything together.  One day, Mr. and Mrs. Lee bring a new baby home.  Bobo is very excited.  He circles, he barks, he jumps.  “Stop, Bobo!  You will scare the baby,” says Mr. Lee.  Bobo’s life is about to change.  Will he be loved in the same way as before?  Will he love the baby as much and Mr. and Mrs. Lee appear to love him?

This is a sweet, tender book about changes that take place in families- especially when a new baby comes into the picture.  This would be a great book for older siblings of a new baby as well. 

Pre-K. EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL. Reviewer: SL.
