Description du titre

A fabulous initiatory trip to guide children who are growing up.

This tender picture book is the story of a journey towards the acceptation of a new order of the world: the birth of a little brother or sister.
It isn’t easy to become a big sister. Suddenly, when the baby is born, the little girl would like to be a baby again, to remain the one and only, the one her parents look at. Good thing for her, Hector the old cuddly toy is here to accompany her on the way to gradually give up her fear, her anger, her sadness, and to accept this little brother and the joy that comes with him.
This little girl, that readers are following over the pages, gradually becomes someone else: a big sister. With great sensitivity, Cécile Roumiguière reflects on this complicated age.
