Books are a great way for our kids to learn important lessons and deal with life’s changes. One of the biggest changes a small child can go through is becoming a big brother or sister. Since my son is about to go through this, I searched for a Spanish book to incorporate into our nightly routine to jump-start the conversation about having a baby around.
¡Ya soy hermano mayor! is a realistic, yet fun story about a little boy named Nacho who can’t wait for his baby brother to grow big enough to play with him. He waits and waits, helping out with the baby and consistently asking his parents if it is time yet, until his hermanito finally sits up and tries to play with Nacho’s toys.
This is a simple way to introduce the idea of a new baby to your child, or to reinforce the fun of being an older sibling to a child who may be struggling with his/her new role.
