"When You Were A Little Baby" by Rhoda Berman with pictures by Mariana. Published by Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Co., Inc New York, copyright 1954.
"Forward: When a new baby arrives, the older children are often bewildered by all the fuss and excitement. Sometimes they can hardly hide their disappointment and are slow to welcome the red and wrinkled mite without any hair, without any teeth-but receiving the attention and adoration of all the family and friends. But if mother explains to the older ones, as she does in this book, that all babies are alike, telling them about the things they used to do when they were little, it will ease the strain. Big brother and sister will feel important and proud to be growing up. They will also look with more favor at the new baby enthroned on mother's lap."
