Books about jealous new siblings!

Passing this on from a library listserv:

“An author has written to me through one of my children’s book blogs and I am hoping to help him find children’s books about children who are jealous of the new baby in the family. I found a book called Geraldine’s Baby Brother on WorldCat, but do you know of any others? Books with non-human characters would be a plus for this author, but I’ll still take human characters as well. ”

  1. Ormerod, Jan. 101 Things to Do with a Baby. 1st U.S. ed. ed., New York, Lothrop, Lee & Shepard, 1984.

    We could read this (picture) book with our older children and compare the family life it depicts to what it was like for us having a new baby in our house. The illustrations, while a bit outdated (e.g. the car seat), are generic enough that it was no problem referring to the baby as a him or a her, depending on which gender was currently occupying the crib in our house.
