There are a lot of stories about cis children dealing with getting a younger sibling. Aidan's feelings are extra complicated because people keep asking his parents what gender the baby will be, and they didn't know his real gender until he was old enough to tell them. He wants everything to be perfect from the start for this baby! A beautifully written and illustrated book great for children of any gender.

The artwork is beautiful and fun, there's so much to discover within every page (perfect for repeat readings!) and the conversational mix of English and Spanish makes for a wonderful learning experience. I wish I had had this book as a kid!
