One Special Day by Lola M. Schaefer

Spenser is a happy, active little boy.  He was "as strong as a...." (see picture above).  He was "funny as a....(monkey)."  He was many things and more.  Then one day he became something more.  Spenser became a big brother.  This book is a new way of looking at becoming a big brother (or sister).  It offers up all the things that the child already is....and that he/she is more now.  Very cute book for that new "big" budding sibling.

We have been reading LOTS of books with this theme since May.  And in a few short weeks our best boy will become a BIG BROTHER when his sister FINALLY comes home from China.  Many changes ahead for this little one (as well as the little one on the other side of the world waiting for us) but I hope that some of the books we have read as well as the discussions we have had as a result of our reading, will help ease him into being a BIG BROTHER.  So posting may be slim over the next few days as we make final preparations for  our trip as well as prepare him to go to his "camp" with his aunt and uncle while we are gone.  Still have a few books to post before we leave but time....and packing will dictate that!
