Reviews - What do our customers think?
Arthur's Baby is Cute  Oct 31, 2006
Arthur's mom and dad were having a baby. Mom ate pickles and ice cream! Arthur's friends did not like babies. Binky said, "You better get some ear plugs!" Francine said, "You will have to talk like babies talk- 'doo doo, goo goo, ga ga'." There were babies everywhere when Arthur went to the park. Buster said, "You're in for triple trouble." Arthur was shaking when he got home because toys and diapers were everywhere. Mom said, "Don't worry about that. Here is a picture of you as a baby, Arthur. Here is you, D.W." "She still has the same big mouth," said Arthur. D.W. was very mad. Her mom said, "D.W., here is something to remind you of me." Mom gave D.W. a picture of her before she left to have the baby. The baby was cute. D.W. was scared of people touching the baby. My favorite part was when the baby came home. I think people should read this book because it is cute.
Arthur Gets a Job  Oct 31, 2006
I like this book! Today was a very special day for D.W. My favorite part was when she had to go past the Tibel twins' house. There, they were jumping all about yelling, "D.W. is our favorite person." D.W. gasped. She grabbed Arthur yelling, "I'm too young to die!" "It's ok, D.W. You'll be safe," Arthur said. I think you should read this book because it is funny.
"Arthur's Baby" -- Not the Best of Arthur  Jul 14, 2005
I don't know which came first, the TV script or the book. But this is one of those situations in which the PBS video is better than the book.

While `Arthur's Baby' is a good story, in book form it fails to *bring home the message* the way that the video does. In the video, considerable time is spent showing that the baby is comfortable with Arthur's holding her, and that Arthur has some `basic' baby knowledge that D.W. just can't have because she is so much younger.

The book text just doesn't get this across. The baby begins to cry and in 8 lines after Arthur picks up Kate, the story comes to a conclusion with an unceremonious burp.

Three Stars. Okay book, but if you will have to explain the message to all but the most adroit kids.
Arthur's Baby  Oct 28, 2002
This book begins with Arthur's parents telling him and his siter D.W. that they are expecting a new baby in about six months. D.W. is terribly excited. She can't wait for the baby to come but Arthur isn't so sure of the whole thing.
The next day at school he talks to his friends about it, and they don't reassure him of anything. In fact they make him even more doubtful than before. Binky tells him that he should get some earplugs,or he'll never sleep because the baby will always be crying in the middle of the night.
Buster tells him that he can forget about playing afterschool because he'll have to go home and babysit everyday.
Muffy tells him that he'll have to change all the dirty diapers that the baby makes.
Francine tells him that he will probably start talking like the baby does.
For the next few months all Arthur sees are babies everywhere they are all he thinks about and not in a good way.
One day after school Arthur comes home and Arthur's mom shows him their baby photo album. He sees different pictures of him and D.W. when they were babies.
The next Saturday morning Arthur sees his mom packing a suitcase and he asks her where she is going. She tells him that she isn't going anywhere they just have to be ready if the baby decides to come.
Sunday morning Arthur goes down to the kitchen to get some breakfast, but instead of his mom standing at the stove, his Grandma Thora was there. She told Arthur and D.W. that they had a new baby sister and that after they had eaten breakfast they would go to the hospital to see her.
And so they did. They met their dad at the hospital and he took them to the nursery part of the hospital and he shows them Kate, their new baby sister.
On Tuesday Arthur's mom and dad brought Kate home. The doorbell was constantly rinnging and it was always more presents for the baby.
That night they were in Kate's nursery and Arthur's mom asked him if he would like to hold Kate, but he said "I'd rather look." D.W. said that it was for the better because Arthur didn't know beans about babies.
A few days later Arthur's mom needed help and she asked Arthur to watch Kate while she went upstairs. D.W. said that she would take care of everything. The doorbell rang and D.W. opened the door and some of Arthur's friends were there. D.W. told them that Arhtur coulnd't play, but they could come see her baby.
D.W. was very defensive and she told everyone not to get too close to her baby and to be quiet because her baby was sleeping. Then Kate woke up and D.W. said that Kate wanted her bottle. Kate drank her bottle very fast and when she was done she began to cry. D.W. told everyone that she had it under control. She kissed Kate on the head, but that didn't stop the crying, she bounced Kate up and down but Kate wailed louder,then Arthur picked up Kate and patted her on the back. Kate let out a big burp and Arthur told everyone that everything was all right now.
I thought this was a great book especially for a family that is expecting and already has one or more children. It tells kids that there is no reason to exclude yourself and not be a part of the new baby and it tells them that even if you think you can't you can help with the new baby. I recommend this to any family that is expectin and would urge them to read it to their kids and fully explain what they can do to help when the baby arrives.
a review for this book  Dec 18, 2001
This book is a great book. I like it because it shows that there are ways to calm children (or should I say all people)down. Everyone should read this.
