The birth of a new baby is a blessing and a joyous occasion, but the arrival of a new sibling can also lead to some growing pains within the family. And so, an award-winning children’s book is here to remind parents that caring for an older sibling is just as important as nurturing the new baby.

KidLit lover John Masiulionis joins Laura Cavanaugh to go inside the pages of Paula M. Karll’s The Adventures of Ellie and Eve: Ellie Meets the New Baby, a heartwarming story that helps older children adjust to a new baby brother or sister.

In addition to inspiring little ones to communicate and courage siblings to bond, this empowering read embraces diversity and incorporates an inclusive depiction of a multi-cultural family, allowing readers to see a representation of themselves and their families in the characters and also see characters who may look different as well. Children can relate to these characters, whose feelings and experiences are universal.

The Adventures of Ellie and Eve: Ellie Meets the New Baby also helps families to build a diverse library for their children. It also includes learning activities to support parents in communicating with their kids.
