Like The Year of the Book, The Year of the Baby is a sweet and honest look at a young girl's everyday worries about family, friends, and school. Anna's perceptive, nonjudgmental way of looking at the people around her gives supporting characters a depth unusual for such a short book. In addition, Anna and her friends' confidence in their ability to work together to solve the problem of baby Kaylee's failure to thrive is refreshing and believable. As in the first book in the series, pen and ink drawings break up the text, making this title a good choice for those new to chapter books.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
