What I loved: This story felt relatable for only children who might be welcoming a new sibling. It can feel like they are now second for everything, as babies need a lot of attention and care. The book ultimately shows that these are normal feelings, but the love that adults felt for you will remain. Angelina definitely acts out quite a bit, but this seemed exaggerated to demonstrate her feelings and their intensity.
The text is pretty lengthy, so this would work best for preschoolers and elementary school children who can tolerate more words between pictures. The font itself was clear and easy to read.
What left me wanting more: I do wish there had been a more constructive display of emotions to set a better example for how to react to jealousy or anger. However, this tantrum may be relatable to children who are not in control of emotions yet.
Final verdict: A relatable story about the excitement and anger that can come with a new sibling, ANGELINA'S BABY SISTER is a picture book that will speak to the older sibling experience. Recommend for preschoolers and older readers.
